another Herrmann classic. i think i thumbed this up once before... but it's a really good piece so here we go again :D

hermann's scores have that refreshing dash of insanity

another outstanding piece by Bernard Herrmann, plus cool title sequence :)

very good documentary on one of our most recognizable composers, Bernard Herrmann

"The band is notoriously reclusive; providing rare and enigmatic interviews, using life size mannequins and robots to conduct official photo shoots, refusing to accept mail and not allowing visitors at the Kling Klang Studio. [...] anyone trying to contact the band for collaboration would be told the studio telephone did not have a ringer, since during recording, the band did not like to hear any kind of noise pollution. Instead, callers were instructed to phone the studio precisely at a certain time, whereupon the phone would be answered by Ralf Hutter, despite never hearing the phone ring."
excellent work. classic recordings can now be automatically picked apart for use in new compositions... with high sound quality
why can't playback devices do dynamic-range compression on the fly -- if we want it :(
