These three seminal works demonstrate the spontaneity of early image-processed video, and exemplify Siegel's experiments with the interrelationship of image and music. In Einstine, which was based on the installation Psychedelevision in Color, a photograph of Albert Einstein is colorized and manipulated to the music of Rimsky-Korsakov. Symphony of the Planets is an abstract composition in which planetary shapes revolve in spiralling forms to the music of Tchaikovsky. Tomorrow Never Knows is a psychedelic interpretation of a Beatles song.
