"Stanley Kubrick is finished", they unanimously proclaim producers and critics after the first screenings of '2001: A Space Odyssey' in Washington. Despite the verdict in the Hollywood establishment, Bowman's journey into space will quickly become a public and critical success. Kubrick's film will give an epochal turning point to the history of cinema. 35 artists and designers, more than 20 special effects experts, a copious staff of scientific consultants, Marvin Minsky of MIT, one of the leading experts in artificial intelligence and automaton construction, meticulously imagine a future very close to our present. As in all Kubrick's films, music and, therefore, the soundtrack, occupy not a secondary part. Indeed, at times it is practically one with dialogues and filming. On the passion of the great director and his meticulousness in choosing the accompaniment for the stories he brought to the big screen.
