The genre of science fiction is more successful than ever, and it has become indispensable to pop culture. But while its images and visuals are firmly anchored in collective cultural memory, its sound is still hardly ever discussed, despite the fact that sound has been an essential feature of its conception and design. The Future Soundscapes Festival is dedicated to these futuristic worlds of sound. With its interdisciplinary contributions, the festival poses the question: what does the future sound like? With concerts, workshops, sound installations, and films with re-recorded scores, the festival brings together international positions in sound design, sonic arts, the avant-garde, and pop music as well as in the cultural and natural sciences.
