Anima POP

Anima POP

„Anima POP“ is a compilation of hand-drawn and puppet animations of the Estonian film studio Tallinnfilm, tracing from the mid-1960s to mid 1980s. Music from these films has been released on the compilation album of the same name.
Throughout the 1970s, a whole generation of young artists, influenced by Western pop art, op art and the surrealist-psychedelic figurative language of the time got employed at animation studios.  Young creators saw it as a window of opportunity, a rare chance to do „their thing”. Also, the composers found a chance to exercise something beyond the routine standards of pop and academic music, to try their hand at the edges of orchestral sonic palette as well as at early synthesizers. Suddenly, pop art merged with pop music, and electric guitars, Rhodes pianos and synthesizers were telling tales of a better future that still hasn’t fully arrived today.
