Cinema often exists to project our dreams, and Science Fiction cinema exists to project our most creative ones. Time travel, alternate worlds, expanded consciousness - the possibilities are endless.
Sound is often said to be half the picture - since the 1950s the film's score has rivalled the innovative imagery of contemporary Sci Fi cinema - and in some ways has surpassed it in status because of the emergence of sophisticated sound design. What would our favourite Sci Fi films be without the amazingly intricate and innovative soundscapes that accompany them?
As part of Filmic – our annual look at the creative connections across film and music – throughout April we’ll be immersing ourselves in some of Sci Fi's most iconic soundscapes, and in a one-off special event on Sun 15 April we welcome Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury to give an insight into their collaboration on the increasingly influential Ex Machina.
