Artemiev, Eduard – “Andrei Tarkovsky’s Solaris” – [Superior Viaduct]
‘Solaris explores the inadequacies of time and memory on an enigmatic planet below a derelict space station.’ Made in 1972, in Russian. A psychological thriller taking place in the future. Eduard Artemiev composed a chillingly adequate soundtrack for the film. This is eerie, spooky, space cadeting music. It has tones that give you goosebumps, gorgeous cosmic celestial drones, synthesizer sounds, and lots of moments of reflection. Floating lost in space, drifting past stars, seeing your past lives flash before you. The color is grey, the temperature is -80.
