Arthur B. Rubinstein is a composer and behind in particular several TV series soundtracks, but also occasional film scores, possibly most notably work such as Video Fever and Edge of the World in the film WarGames. During the making of these soundtracks, he was a member of the band The Beepers. He has frequently been hired by film director John Badham, and the majority of his movie soundtracks are to be found in Badham's work. In 1983 Rubinstein scored the soundtrack to John Badham's Orwell stylized film Blue Thunder. Rubinstein created the score using various synthesizers, a popular instrument of the 80's era. In the score Rubinstein used these synthesizers in a symphonic manner by combining them with brass, percussion and string ensembles. Using the Synclavier II and dubbing this with both the Jupiter, the Prophet and the Moog analog synthesizers, Rubinstein also created a very unusual sound by placing a microphone inside a large empty water bottle and placing it underneath a Steinway grand piano.
