5.0 out of 5 stars
From the people who invented how "sci-fi" should sound..., 6 Nov 2011
Through their work on this film Louis and Bebe Barron have single handedly invented the way that sci-fi sounds. In the same way that we almost instinctively know how Western or War film music sounds, this soundtrack has had as profound an effect on all futuristic films that followed it and set the benchmark. The film itself did this for how sci-fi looks as well.
Truly original, truly influential, this is a must for anyone that is interested in the history of electronic music; as the same way that the film is for the history of cinema.
