Edward Nicolay Artemyev
Saw the (original 1972) film Solaris by Tarkovsky the other day, which was brilliant. The music, composed by electronica pioneer Edward Nicolay Artemyev, was brilliant, too. If you listen to it closely, you can hear how much he influenced later musicians such as Brian Eno. Check out the Solaris Room website for more info.
Design geek side note: Eero Saarinen's classic white Tulip table (see Solaris film still above) seems to turn up in all the cool sci fi films...if I recall correctly, it's in 2001: A Space Odyssey as well. Someday, I hope to have one too...
