The range of expertise practiced by Charles & Ray Eames was most remarkable. Optics, mathematics, history, physics and of course, design of all stripes, were subjects all well within their grasp. But when it came to music, they left it up to their friend and confidante, Elmer Bernstein. Bernstein is better known for his work on feature films, but his work for the Eames’ short subjects is just as interesting. Some of the music for their shorts feels quite dated, but some compositions feel just as fresh as the day they were struck to magnetic tape. Here are a few of my favorites…
