Actually, it looks like he is still alive. I might try to contact him.

>> My grandfather was a Belgian sculptor by the name of Charles Leplae. I posted a YouTube video about him a while back, but today was inspired to look up the name of the person who seems to be credited with the music. Arsène Souffriau.
>> I looked him up and was surprised to find out that he was an early experimental electronic composer. It’s hard to believe it’s the same person because the music is so different, but it’s also hard to imagine that there are two composers with the same name and seem to both be Belgian.
