Aural Films is excited to introduce the Krell Music Compilation project. One of the most memorable parts of the 1956 science fiction film "Forbidden Planet" was the mysterious extinction of the inhabitants of Altair VI known as, the Krell. A highly advanced race that developed highly advanced technologies.
Among them, a strangely compelling music unlike anything heard, or seen before. Played by the fantastic, Krell Music Box (shown right). Today, we know the music of the Krell to be the work of Bebe and Louis Barron. Who's innovative work with electronic music and soundtrack scores. Created a world that still inspires sound designers.
That's where you come in! Aural Films is calling on sound artists to imagine it is 1956. You have been commissioned to record a Krell Music composition to be used in Forbidden Planet at any point in the film. Choose any concept, person, place, scene, setting, or other aspect to write some Krell music for - in any way you like. Considering we don't know much about the Krell. You are encouraged to do something different, radical even. The challenge is to keep it KRELL!
Deadline for submissions is September 30th, 2018. Read the full project submission details at https://auralfilms.com/krell-music-compilation-project/

Hmm... this reminds me of a very lo fi VHS video I put together around 1990, which starts out with a bunch of flashing freeze frames and action shots from Forbidden Planet. This opening bit is set to the music of Herd Of The Ether Space "At The Space Bar," (which appears on your CIII Aural Films Bio set, among other places). The entire video is a sprawl of 2 hours, and was only shared with a few people back in the day. Of course, we all know how Robbie The Robot was quite the drinker -- only natural for him to be involved in such a thing...
LOL! There is always Archive.org ;)

Hey you two -- just in case you'd like a tiny audio glimpse of Jack's interest in providing alternative audio for Sci Fi movies, tune into this week's Deprogramming Center:
Glad you found it, Adam. I tried to put all the details on there.

Inspired by the mystery of life. I manipulate sound to create intangible electro-organic impressions between music and noise.
