In the Summer of 2000, Bebe was invited to be composer-in-residence at the University of California, Santa Barbara for 2 weeks, collecting sounds at their CREATE studio with the help of assistants. Luckily, by that time, technology had advanced to allow computers to mimic the analog sounds she had always loved. The following October, she brought these sounds on CD as AIFF files to my studio in Santa Monica, and I imported them into Digital Performer on the Mac. Over the next six weeks, she created her last work. As recording engineer and studio assistant, I felt privileged to have facilitated the composition of her final piece, "Mixed Emotions". Almost 50 years after Forbidden Planet, though created by very different means, "Mixed Emotions" bears Bebe's personal stamp -- Jane Brockman, friend. *** For more information about the Barrons, visit www.BarronSoundPortraits.com
