Edward Artemyev began to compose electronic music in the early 1960s. He became interested in scholarly classical music and the most avant-garde Rock. He is the author of about a hundred and fifty TV and movie soundtracks. He composed the cantata of the Olympic Games in Moscow in 1980, for a symphonic orchestra, choirs, a Rock band and synthesizer; a very unorthodox daring for those times and country. In 1989 he composed a work for the Bicentennial of the French Revolution, commissioned by the organisers of the Festival of Electronic Music in Bourges. Some of his best known works are: "The Seven Gates into the World of Satori", "Mood-Pictures", "The Warmth of the Earth", "Peregrini", and of course his movie soundtracks for the films of Andrei Tarkovski (on whose memorial he composed a special theme), as well as those of Andrei Konchalovski and Nikita Mikhalkov. He alternates his studio work periods with frequent trips to the international festivals where he is invited as a guest artist. He has received honors in many countries, as for instance the United States, and he has also been appointed for a variety of important posts, as for example one in the International Confederation of Electroacoustic Music, of the UNESCO. He has composed soundtracks for the movie industry in Hollywood.
