April 2018 Watershed Podcast
As part of Filmic, April's podcast offers a sonic guided tour to the soundtracks of this month's upcoming film season, The Sound of Sci-fi.
Mark Cosgrove, Watershed Cinema Curator, and film journalist Sean Wilson discuss how science fiction films are fertile ground for film score composers to develop their own sonic language, responding to subjects beyond our day-to-day comprehension. They play snippets from the soundtracks and discuss what makes them so compelling, otherworldly and successful.
