What a great story! The just-married masters of 1940’s New York’s avant-garde, given a copy of Adolf Hitler’s tape recorder by Louis’ cousin at 3M Development Division. For years, they had the only studio with tape in New York City, and were recording everyone from John Cage to Anais Nin. Commissioned out of the blue to provide electronic tonalities for Forbidden Planet, Louis and Bebe Barron produced the sounds in this pre-synthesizer, pre-radiophonic age by literally torturing their equipment to death. The otherworldly, never heard before and never heard again sounds of the first and perhaps the best big studio science fiction movie are captured here on heavyweight vinyl, just for you.
