The original name of the piece is "De Forrest Murmurs" and it is a homage to
Ly de Forrest the inventor of the electronic tube, but playing with "The
Forrest Murmurs", fragment of "Siegfied" by Wagner. The first transatlantic
radio transmission by Marconi from the US to the UK used electronic tubes
and the first piece of music transmited via this method was a fragment of
Parsifal, and I guess it is from the overture, but I am not sure.
