Muze PNote THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL is one of Bernard Herrmann's most inventive soundtracks. This is attributable, largely, to the unusual instrumentation, which includes a small orchestra of Theremins, trumpets, trombones, tubas, reed organ, Hammond Organs, pianos, percussionists, and electrically amplified violin, cello, and bass. Naturally, the unusual ensemble, featuring acoustic and electric sounds, and the unearthly, vibrating voice of the Theremin (Herrmann scored the piece for two Theremins, and they often play at cross-purposes, using the instrument's already unconventional sound to create disorienting swirls) adds to the unsettling, futuristic theme of the film.
Muze PNote The music exemplifies Herrmann's strengths with minimalist expression and theme-and-variation technique. A master of dramatic tension and dynamic musical dialogue, Herrmann pits low-rumbling electric bass and timpani against airy, eerie celeste and Theremin melodies. Light, acoustic instruments like bells and harps ring around ominous horn lines and twangy electric guitar. While never atonal, Herrmann's approach to melody is unusual, employing odd interval leaps. Likewise, the music here is motivated by texture and mood rather than the development of themes (though several motifs are repeated) and the result is some of the most vital, forward-thinking music of the era (not only for film, but any medium).

Producer: Robert Townson

Engineer: Jonathan Allen
