• 12" - Edward Artemiev - The Mirror / Stalker [ OST ]
"It comes as no surprise that Andrei Tarkovsky, master of Soviet cinema, turned to composer Eduard Artemiev to score his two lyrical and haunting films, 'The Mirror' (1975) and 'Stalker' (1979), as he had done for 'Solaris'. Artemiev's magnificent soundtrack to The Mirror is the natural follow-up to Solaris. Dense, slow-moving, and often disorienting mood pieces with Baroque sensibilities resonate beyond the film's dream-like images. For Stalker Tarkovsky's other science fiction masterpiece Artemiev was inspired by Indian classical music and employed layers of synth tones, flute and tar (a traditional Iranian stringed instrument) to create a central theme as spellbinding as The Zone, a setting in the film where laws of physics no longer apply. Superior Viaduct presents the first-time official release of these two astonishingly unique soundtracks. Recommended for fans of Lech Jankowski's music for Brothers Quay films, BC Gilbert & G Lewis and Oneohtrix Point Never."
