Torus: Live Soundtrack Stalker

Melkweg Cinema | Lijnbaansgracht 234a, Amsterdam
Melkweg invited musician Torus to pick a movie and to create a new soundtrack. Torus chose ‘Stalker’, a 1979 Soviet science fiction art film directed by Andrei Tarkovsky. The film combines elements of science fiction with dramatic philosophical and psychological themes. We will screen the movie in Melkweg Cinema and during the film Torus will take you on a trip with his new soundtrack!
The film depicts an expedition led by a figure known as the "Stalker" to take his two clients—a melancholic writer seeking inspiration, and a professor seeking scientific discovery—to a mysterious restricted site known simply as the "Zone," where there is a room which supposedly has the ability to fulfill a person's innermost desires. The trio travel through unnerving areas filled with the debris of modern society while engaging in many arguments. The "Zone" itself appears sentient, while their path through it can be sensed but not seen. In the film, a "stalker" is a professional guide to the Zone, someone having the ability and desire to cross the border into the dangerous and forbidden place with a specific goal.
Torus is the ever-evolving alter-ego of The Hague-born artist and producer, Joeri Woudstra.
