The Sound of Soviet Science Fiction

As always, fantastic article by Sound and Music.

Robert Barry explores the soundtracks of Eduard Artemiev, best known for his work with Andrei Tarkovsky, whose films are among the many celebrated at BFI’s Kosmos season of Soviet SF films.

  1. Tarkovsky it’s a quite, quite controversial reflection of the soviet science fiction. Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, they are the Fathers of the soviet sci-fi literature. Tarkovsky’s “Stalker” (supposedly based on Strugatsky’s “Roadside Picnic”) has nothing common with the sourcebook.

    We had the Gods but CPSU didn’t allow to film their masterpieces.

    PS Don’t watch the modern screen version “The Inhabited Island” (2008). It’s a nonsense and a miserable odd job. There is no cinema in Russia anymore.
