Dick Maas / NL, 1983 / 95 min.

First major feature film by Dick Maas, starring Huub Stapel as a lift technician who’s up against an elevator with murderous intentions. Like his paragon John Carpenter, Maas himself produced the synthesizer score which was released on vinyl abroad and rightly acquired a cult status of its own.

Tales of the Future

What would remain of Blade Runner if you take away Vangelis’ synthesizers? Or try to imagine Tarkovsky’s SF classic Solaris without the electronic score. With Tales of the Future, Eye focuses on the impact of the synthesizer on film music and sound design.
