Soundtracks To Novels: Sine Fiction

Late Friday afternoon... Time to disengage the mind from work... And this week, the sonic means to that end is Sine Fiction, an netlabel/art project devoted to soundtracks inspired by notable science fiction novels. The project's been going since 2000 and has so far released 14 compositions (with another 19 in the pipeline.) The authors who've received the Sine Fiction treatment include Stanislaw Lem, Arthur C Clarke, Isaac Asimov, Philip K. Dick, Samuel Delaney, Italo Calvino, George Orwell and William S Burroughs. (In the future, we're promised H G Wells, J G Ballard, William Gibson, Margaret Atwood, and Robert Anton Wilson - just to name a few.)

The music itself its mostly boffin electronica - soundscapes, dubby glitch, moody IDM, ear-searing digi-noise, and even some musique concrete. But if any of that appeals to you, I highly recommend heading over to the site and having a good aural wallow! (via Metafilter)
