This is a short film adaptation of The Soundscape, which is a book written by R. Murray Schafer.The sound design and stock/filmed footage reflects many ideas from the book, including our relationship to sound, how it has changed over time, and what it can tell us about our society and future. Unlike most films, the audio was created first, and then the picture. The audio acts as the primary story telling tool in a sound design/song like fashion. The video suppliments this design and supports it in a different sense. We do not claim copyright over any of the footage used. This was created using other works in the style of changing them and creating a derivative work, because we do not have the ability to show many of the images that support the sound design.
