Soundtrack to Solaris0
Ben Frost & Daníel Bjarnason create a score inspired by Tarkovsky's masterpiece...
Created through a unique series of processes, Frost & Bjarnason’s initial sketches —improvised to the film— were fed through software designed to correct music which tried to turn their dense and distorted sonic input into a digital sequence of raw musical data. Working from data riddled with error and misunderstanding, a human score was orchestrated; the whole process deftly mirroring the core of the film’s own narrative of memory and loss, alien doppelgangers and emotional feedback loops. Brian Eno — who consulted closely in the creation of SÓLARIS — also used the same film to create a video accompaniment to this music in another strange loop of computer-generated distortion.
The album is due for release on November 7th but you can stream it here
