Sounds for a strange funeral
Abstract:Cat’s Cradle metaphorically stages the image schema ‘death as a path’. It is argued that the strangeness of the fiction, its ritualistic surrealism, is enhanced by its soundtrack, which downplays the natural link between human action and environment. Instead, the sound seems to emphasize more abstract and thematic aspects.
