CANCELLED – March 10: INHUMAN NOISE: SYNTHESIZED SOUND AS ANTAGONIST, WEAPON AND SUPERNATURAL PRESENCE IN HORROR CINEMA

Electronic music and sound started to appear on science fiction and horror soundtracks in the 1950s, and by the 1970s were increasingly commonplace, used to denote alien life-forms, demonic realms and psychic ruptures. By the 1980s, the synth scores of director/composer John Carpenter were synonymous with modern American horror. But how have electronic music and sound become an agent of horror, as well as an accompaniment to it? This talk looks beyond the soundtrack at the role of composers, instruments, computers and other sound-making devices in horror films, revealing that the relationship between alien sounds and inhuman activity is not always as straightforward as one might expect.
