Joyride on Vimeo



an animation by Alyssa Rothwell


Alyssa Rothwell’s short animated film, Joyride is based on the Andrew Schultz composition for instrumental sextet from 2009, Ether Etude. It is only two minutes of music but there were hundreds of individual drawings in the animation – such as the image shown above.  Joyride is extremely witty and also completely abstract – not an easy double to pull off.

The film has had quite a few screenings, including  at the  Melbourne International and Australian International Animation Festivals in 2012 and the Adelaide Perry Prize for Drawing, the Music to Movement Festival and the National Art School Drawing Symposium in Sydney in 2013.
