“A direct animation film in the style of COLOR CRY, based on a drum solo by Gene Krupa. Len Lye made LIFE'S MUSICAL MINUTE in the hope to persuade the Life magazine to finance similar films as corporate advertising.”
— Len Lye, edited by Jean-Michel Bouhours and Roger Horrocks.
Soundtrack music is Golden Wedding by Woody Herman. The drummer on this track is Frank Carlson.
