What does the future sound like? Future Soundscapes investigates the past and present of science-fiction sounds at the intersection of popular culture, music and film. With sound lectures and talks, concerts and performances by Jan Brauer, Gato Preto, Quadrature and Felix Kubin a.o.

Whether it is the mechanical squeaking of the joints of humanoid robots, the ominously thudding rhythm of machine cities, the digital crackling of bits and bytes or the celestial sounds of the infinite expanses of the universe, we associate each of these soundscapes with specific visual worlds from the utopian to the full-on dystopian. While the genre’s narratives and images are already omnipresent, and widely discussed, sound has remained a blank space in this discourse. That’s why Future Soundscapes now sets out to explore sound as an essential element in the conception of future worlds, be it as noise, tones or music.
