RIP Bebe Barron

Bebe and Louis Barron composed the score and effects tracks for Forbidden Planet. The NYT has a nice obituary.
It mentions how the music and effects are not readily distinguishable which adds a lot to the movie's portrayal of alieness. I think they may have missed out on some dramatic possibilities through their technique, but it is hard to argue with success.
