Edward Artemiev - Harmony Of The World

Here is a fine collection of Edward Artemiev's great electronic compositions. If you dont have this you're missing an important piece of electronic music history.
Artemiev is a Russian composer of electronic music and film scores. Probably best known for his music in the Soviet era films by Andrei Tarkovsky, Nikita Mikhalkov and Andrei Konchalovsky, he has been composing since the 1960s. His music was hard to find during the Communist era. Since the early '90s, reissues and collections have multiplied, fostered by Artemiev's successes on the screen.He has been an inspiration for several electronic composers of our time!

Edward Artemiev - Tass Upolnomochen Zayavit (1984)

Here we present the soundtrack of an obscure russian tv series that was created during the cold war. Excellent work - mostly dark and mysterious - by one of the best electronic composers of all times. Here!

Alien Nature - Massive (2010)

This is another great album from Alien Nature, a mixture of IDM and Berlin school music. Nice arpeggios and atmospheric effects with precise key changes make this album a real gem. Highly recomended for the funs of vintage electronica!
