Walter Ruttmann (1887-1941) was a german director, screenwriter, cinematographer and editor. As a filmmaker, he created an impressionistic symphony with his experimental portrait of Berlin in 1927 Berlin, die Sinfonie der Großstadt.
His unique musical composition Weekend is a pioneering work from the early days of radio, commissioned in 1928 by Berlin Radio Hour. In a collage of words, music fragments and sounds, Walter Ruttmann presented a radically innovative radio piece (Hörspiel) as an acoustic film of a Berlin weekend urban landscape. (discogs) Disapeared for a long time, a copy was discovered in 1978 and showed how innovative was this piece !
