This week the 21st Century Schizophone charts intersections between the arts of film sound design and soundscape composition to explore the similar working methods, aesthetic concerns and political goals of these areas of creative practice. The show features an in-depth listen to the work of sound designer Leslie Shatz and composers Hildegard Westerkamp and Frances White in and around the films of Gus Van Sant. We continue the show’s schizophonic mandate by considering what happens when soundscape composition is imported into the audiovisual realm of the cinema, and how film sound can become a sound art in its own right through the magic of radio.
Aired on CKUT 90.3 FM in Montreal, QC, Canada, July 10th 2012.
