Mary Ellen Bute and Ted Nemeth, Synchromy No. 4: Escape, 1937
Music is Toccata in D Minor by J. S. Bach.
Mary Ellen Bute was one of the first females to experiment with film and animation back when film was still a wee baby getting a grasp on what it could be. Her films focused on visual abstractions interlaced with music (a music video basically).
Her stuff is amazing. Google her for more shorts.
