Tuning Speculation

"Decoding the Sonic Xenomorph" at Tuning Speculation VI.

My first conference presentation in about seven years remixed materials from The Sound of Things to Come that emphasized the xenomorphic aspect of sonorous object-oriented ontologies in The Day the Earth Stood Still, Forbidden Planet, Alien, John Carpenter’s The Thing, and Decoder. Great to meet so many amazing scholars and creative thinkers at Tuning Speculation VI, and many thanks to the Occulture for organizing this outstanding event! If you want more, here’s the whole set of highly recommended presentations.
