Another Escape #4
In This Item
The alluring worlds of the Night were the subject of the editors’ fascination for Volume Four. They wanted an abstract starting point that would allow them to pull at interesting threads, and create an original selection of stories. The Night proved to be an exciting concept that held so much potential for unusual interpretation, especially within their editorial style.
They discuss how sleepless nights may be used as a time for creative endeavours and pursuits of the mind; reflect on what the humble light bulb has afforded us; and visit New York, Berlin and London to discover thriving night cultures that are deep-rooted within the cities’ histories and personalities.
With an interest in the natural world, they delve into the nocturnal realm of The Night Garden, a place where flowers bloom in the darkness, heady scents hang in the air, and the nocturnal pollinators come out to play; dive into the deep reaches of our oceans and explore tropical coral reefs with marine biologist, David Gruber, and gain a better understanding of the Luminous Worlds that exist beneath the water’s surface; and travel to the most southern regions of our planet and step out onto the icy plains of the East Antarctic Icesheet on a Meteorite Hunt with Ralph P. Harvey and Katie Joy, to try to unlock the secrets of the universe from within these nuggets of space rock.
Lastly, they gain an insight into the form and function of the haunting soundworlds created for the crime-thriller genre; examining how sound may be used to manipulate, influence and guide our emotional and intrinsic reactions, and how sound designers are able to interweave deep narratives into a soundtrack.
