His composition "Mah Nà Mah Nà" (1968) was originally used in Sweden: Heaven and Hell, a 1968 Mondo documentary about Sweden. Umiliani's other scores included Son of Django, Orgasmo, Gangster's Law, Death Knocks Twice, Five Dolls for an August Moon,Baba Yaga and The Slave and Sex Pot.

A walk through the cosmic surroundings

Wendy Carlos (born Walter Carlos, November 14, 1939) is an American musician and composer best known for her electronic music and film scores.

Born and raised in Rhode Island, Carlos studied physics and music at Brown University before moving to New York City in 1962 to study music composition at Columbia University. Studying and working with various electronic musicians and technicians at the city's Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center, she helped in the development of the Moog synthesizer, Robert Moog's first commercially available keyboard instrument.
Carlos came to prominence with Switched-On Bach (1968), an album of music by Johann Sebastian Bach performed on a Moog synthesizer, which helped popularize its use in the 1970s and won her three Grammy Awards. Its commercial success led to several more albums, including further synthesized classical music adaptations, and experimental and ambient music. She composed the score to two Stanley Kubrick films, A Clockwork Orange (1971) and The Shining (1980), and for Tron (1982) for Walt Disney Productions.

Falling into deadly spyral

Beth B and Scott B is an influential duo of US experimental filmmakers, primarily active in New York City in the late 1970s to early 80s and associated with the "No Wave" and "Cinema of Transgression" movements. Scott B and Beth B (known under various combinations of their first names with "B" initial) were married and lived in NYC's East Village area. They directed several "no budget" 16-mm shorts and feature-length films via B Movies independent production company, with critics and progressive moviegoers praising their unique "punk bohemia" lo-fi aesthetics and violent, sinister themes. The duo also extensively collaborated with local experimental performers and noise artists and cleverly played in the New York hip crowd's impatience and "flakiness." Beth & Scott would typically finish a new movie within a few days, ensuring a steady stream of fresh material for weekly screenings at local rock clubs, such as Max's Kansas City or Mudd Club, New York.
In September 1982, Beth B & Scott B premiered their most acclaimed movie at the New York Film Festival, Vortex — a dark "noir" detective/thriller starring Lydia Lunch (of Teenage Jesus And The Jerks) with James Russo, Bill Rice, Haoui Montaug and Ann Magnuson. They ended the collaboration soon after the film's premiere, continuing working in film independently; Beth B has a more prolific artistic career, while Scott focused on the technical side, co-founding "Antenna Films" production company in 2000.
