This recording is an original soundtrack to artist David A. Hardy's new edit of 1957 Russian film Road to the Stars, originally directed by Pavel Klushantsev.
Hardy has taken Klushantsev’s original docu-film, and created the first ever English subtitled version. This new edit includes translations of dialogue and the original factual information, as well as new artistic and cinematic references, which further emphasise the influence and vision of Road to the Stars.
For this project, I decided to step away from my usual electronic style, instead favouring orchestral sounds. My aim was to create a symphonic score with modern appeal but that also works with the original Soviet-era film.
