More stars in the George Antheil universe…
TRUE story of the amazing
"invention", by composer George Antheil and Hollywood legend
Hedy Lamarr, of
"spread-spectrum" technology—the basis of all wireless
A delightful new children's book, "George Antheil Gives a Concert, and the audience…" by Maine Artist Robert Lockwood"Hedy's Folly" by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Rhodes, also tells the story of the Antheil/Lamarr collaboration.
A good read, but not well researched: despite what the book says, Antheil was not able to synchronize four pianolas at his 1927 Carnegie Hall concert!
The Del Sol String Quartet has released Antheil's complete string quartets, remarkable pieces from 1922 to 1948. Learn more from Other Minds.
Lisa Perkins's ongoing film project about Hedy Lamarr and George Antheil gets a wonderful behind-the-scenes write-up by Rob Walters in Writers in Oxford. And read Walters's book "Spread Spectrum" on Hedy and George.
