Feedback interrogates Peter Strickland, director of Berberian Sound Studio, the disorienting descent of a British sound engineer into an existential nightmare after traveling to Italy to work on a horror film. Sorry, a ‘Santini’ film!

    Another brilliant interview, haven’t seen the movie yet, but it is on our to see list. Have always been interested in music, sound & those that created the sound effects for old movies & live radio shows/serials. Been a long time fan of not only soundtracks (Goblin, Komeda, Morricone, Penderecki, etc…) , but artists like Nurse With Wound, Cage, etc…
