2001 a Space Odyssey is considered as the first modern film of Science-Fiction and has inspired many films including Star Wars and Blade Runner

The movie is about human condition and progress  towards a spectacular and philosophical journey. Each time humanity reaches a crossing point of in its evolution, a strange black stone appears on Earth  that symbolizes progress as an ineluctable temptation. This stone inspired the theme of MEN 2019: SIGNS

For his masterpiece, Stanley Kubrick decided to use very few «sound effects » or electronic music (as in many Sci-Fi movies) but he decided mainly to use orchestral music, which was very unusual at that time. It became a strong reference for modern films and now everybody knows motif from Also Sprach Zarathustra by Richard Strauss  in the first part of the movie.
Conducted by Adrian Prabava, the NFM Wrocław Philharmonic and NFM Choir will propose present a live version of this exceptional film score in the main hall as the opening concert of Musica Electronica Nova Festival 2019.
