Celebrating Electronic Music Pioneers: Bebe Barron & Otto Luening on "Space is the Place" Friday 6/14 @ 6 p.m.
Be sure to listen to "Space is the Place" this Friday 6 - 8 p.m. as Host Tom Wilson presents the groundbreaking, entirely electronic score of the sci-fi film classic, "Forbidden Planet". This 1956 film inspired Gene Rodenberry to create "Star Trek". The music was composed by the electronic music pioneer husband and wife team of Louis & Bebe Barron (born: 6/16/25). The Barron's music - "Electronic Tonalities" - remains as riveting and inventive today as it did when it was first written and performed.
