2001 A Space Odyssey - Soundtrack (1968)

I had not really paid much attention to this
soundtrack - 2001 is one of my top films but
playing the music? Not really for me but .....
about 10/11 years ago, the National Film
Theater showed the film, using the sound
system that Kubrick had devised but was in
the end just too expensive to install in cinemas.

There were huge speakers all over the place and
the music fucking kicked arse!

Classical music interspersed with choirs performing
banks of human drones, groans and just a general
feeling of out-there weirdness.

Turn up the volume, turn down the lights and
take a trip into the unknown!
