2001: A Space Odyssey (Part 2)

It’s the eleventh installment of KubrickCast and our second of at least a few about 2001: A Space Odyssey, arguably Stanley Kubrick’s greatest achievement In this episode, we explore how Doug Trumbull joined the special effects team; why the Discovery is headed to Jupiter in the film but Saturn in the novel; why the Earth is so blue; Bill attempts (and, let’s be honest, mostly fails) to explain how the spaceship scenes were shot; how the floating pen; Kubrick’s criteria for including music in his films; why Kubrick was right not to use Alex North’s score, but could have been nicer about it; the music of Strausses Richard and Johann; György Ligeti’s mixed reaction to the use of his compositions in the film; why HAL 9000 sings “Daisy Bell”; also, I was told there might be aliens?  (1:10:14)
