This month’s edition of After Dark at the Exploratorium offers something for everyone, whether you are fascinated by the avant garde roots of electronic music, or groundbreaking husband-wife film composers or having too many cocktails and exploring the Tactile Dome. Sound designer Ben Burtt (Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Wall-E) and electronic music scholar Geeta Dayal will present a program on Bebe and Louis Barron, who composed the ground-breaking all electronic score for 1956’s Forbidden Planet, complete with a few short films on loan from the Library of Congress.
