in the thirties, on a film called _ABC of Sound_, or a Fischinger film I'm
forgetting the title of; not sure of the sequence. I'd say the best-known is
Norman McLaren's _Allegro_. There was a long thread on this stuff on the
frameworks list in May -- you can root around in the archives at
(look for subject lines "Drawing Sound" and "music/optical track/Reeves")
One of my favorite takes on the idea is Scott Stark's _The Sound of His Face_
(1993?), which is a "film version of a biography of Kirk Douglas", made by
putting 16mm film in a 35mm still camera & shooting the contents of a book ...
the image (type, halftone photos) bleeds completely over the soundtrack area, so
what you see is what you hear (one second later).
