Philip Glass for Sesame Street

More proof that Sesame Street (the original series) was the greatest show EVER. In 1979, famed-composer Philip Glass wrote a series of pieces for the show called “Geometry of Circles”.

Kids these days aren’t getting the visual education they need! So many of today’s designers were being taught design principles at an early age by shows like Sesame Street.

Another great clip – Counting up to 20 – You never see psychedelic animation like this on kids shows today.

  • psychedelic indeed! no wonder kids used to watch a lot of sesame street!

  • yea haha – i am really hoping they put out full seasons on dvd i would buy them all in a heartbeat

  • Amazing!! I grew up watching Sesame Street and while I knew it was fantastic, I never realized how it may have subconsciously informed my design sense.

    Oh my goodness!!! I had forgotten those clips but when they started playing I immediately remembered everything about them. These things stay in your subconscious and I definitely think Sesame Street of yesteryear was way better than what they are showing kids now.

  • Yeah I almost want to start a petition to bring back the original series!

  • For MY sake! haha

  • I remember watching this when I was a kid… 🙂
    @Tracy, I totally agree.

Watch: “The Junction: A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs”

Here’s episode #3 of our animated series for Red Bull Music Academy, and it’s a peek into the pop culture-filled minds of Fool’s Gold co-founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Hopefully you’ll find it to be an enjoyable mix of the absurd and the profound (would love to see these two start their own podcast).

The visuals here are a collaborative effort from animator Brandon Blommaert and illustrator Josh Holinaty. The sound design and original music were created by Luigi Allemano.

Make sure you hit full screen on the episode above or watch it nice and big over on Booooooom TV.

Stay tuned for the rest of the episodes! If you missed the first two, watch Episode #1: Chilly Gonzales and Peaches, and watch Episode #2: Kaytranada and River Tiber.
