Homage to 'Forbidden Planet' (1956), but more importantly to the sound people involved in the film. I first saw it at a drive-in theater in downstate Illinois as a tyke and several scenes left their mark, but the battle with the Monster from the Id really sticks with you.

Of particular interest is the sound engineering in the movie, all of which was made by a married couple - Louis and Bebe Barron - in their apartment in Greenwich Village using custom built electronics invented by Louis. Sadly, the musicians union at the time did not recognize their work as being music at all - just sound effects - and saw to it that they would never find work in Hollywood again. So the creative genius of the Barrons was shelved and the advancement of electronic music was set back many years. It's interesting to think that this film was released 8 years before the first Moog synthesizer was - and 12 years before any commercially successful work had been created on a Moog.

So this is a tribute to Louis and Bebe Barron for their pioneering work in electronic music - a term they weren't allowed to use in the credits on 'Forbidden Planet', they instead had to refer to it as "electronic tonalities" because the studio was afraid of the union. But there is no other music that I am aware of in 'Forbidden Planet' other than that which was produced by the couple.
