Summary

Wassily Kandinsky, a Russian-born artist, was one of the first creators of pure abstraction in modern painting. His forms evolved from fluid and organic, to geometric, and finally to pictographic. Kandinsky was also an accomplished musician and believed in the concept that color and musical harmony are linked. He even claimed that when he saw color he heard music. Listen to this abridged audio of his insightful writing.

meh

An interesting piece of historical perspective on art during the turn of the century. The narrator for this version is a bit over-the-top (A LOT of unnecessary inflection) and mispronounces the names of some historical figures such as German composer Richard Wagner (saying wag-ner, instead of vag-ner). Just okay overall. Don't take this text at face value guys, art has changed a lot, as has society.

Ruined by bizarre human/robot hybrid narration

The narrator's odd elocutions and bizarre tone of voice fall into that "uncanny valley" between human and not quite fully human, and the result is profoundly unsettling: it actually turned my stomach at one point, and I had to abruptly stop it. No doubt Wassily Kandinsky has something worthwhile to impart, but I'm not going to learn anything about it here.
