Eye on Sound has created Tales of the Future, a program centred on the influence of the synthesiser on sound design and composition in film. In Solaris, Andrej Tarkovski crafts a slow-moving psychological narrative, pushing back against western approaches to science fiction with a dreamscape unlike any other. In the vacuum of space, can you trust your senses? What happens when a utopia is hallucinated collectively? Eduard Artemiev created an electronic musical landscape that mimics mysterious amorphous landscape of the planet Solaris.
