Edition 62 - On a late August Sunday afternoon I spent just under three hours of my life hypnotised by the 1972 Russian film Solaris by Andrei Tarkovsky. This dark, twisted and hypnotisingly slow film follows one man’s voyage to the oceanic planet Solaris and the emotional dangerous effect it induces in him. The films influence isn’t limited to the all-you-can eat visuals but goes into every area of film making, including the fantastic use of music. Worms and wormholes and everything else is all woven into this mp3 alongside some embedded snippets from Carl Orff's 'Music For Children. (Ben Eshmade)
