Why would Meat Beat Manifesto’s mastermind mess with Louis and Bebe Barron’s untouchable 1956 soundtrack to Forbidden Planet, an ur-document of malevolent, spacey woobs, gurgles and twitters? Because Jack has the world’s only functioning EMS Synthi 100, and, damn it, he’s gonna use it. This recording, live from France’s I.D.E.A.L. Festival, proves that Dangers is well-suited to subtly modify and capture the questing spirit of the Barrons’ original (see “Battle With Invisible Monster” for proof). Disc two contains 50 snippets of sci-fi sound effects-dozens of vintage analog-synth emissions ripe for producers seeking instant threatening atmospheres and otherworldly textures.
