Trace Reddell will speak about and sign his new book, The Sound of Things to Come: An Audible History of the Science Fiction Film, on Wednesday, January 23rd at 7:30pm.
About the Book:
Including original readings of classics like The Day the Earth Stood Still, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Star Wars, and Blade Runner, The Sound of Things to Come delivers a comprehensive history of sound in science fiction cinema. Avoiding genre criticism’s tendency to obsess over utopias, this book draws on film theory, sound studies, and philosophies of technology to advance conversations about the avant-garde, while also opening up opportunities to examine cinematic sounds beyond the screen.
