A strange and fascinating piece of abstract electronic music surfaces in a key sequence in The Hunger Games. The track “Sediment,” used to great effect during the movie’s “cornucopia scene,” was composed in 1972 by pioneering composer Laurie Spiegel, who used an analog synthesizer and old-school tape machines to create the sweeping, nine-minute epic.

  1. Far-out!

    That’s an old Electro-Comp portable analog synthesizer on the desk. My school district (Farmingdale, NY) had one of those that I used to noodle around with. I remember giving a demonstration in one of my HS classes.

    Great memories!

    Electro-Comp was located in Connecticut.
