Pendragon Press



From 1963-1965, The Outer Limits, an anthology television show co-created by Joseph Stefano and Leslie Stevens, was broadcast on ABC. Through the use of unconventional and newly invented instruments and household objects to produce unique sounds, the show not only looked different from most television of the time, but it sounded different as well. We Will Control All That You Will Hear: The Outer Limits and the Aural Imagination, discusses the use of music within the series, offering multiple readings of the ways that music is used. This book focuses not only on the ways that newly composed scores and stock music were utilized in the series, but also how the music enhances and interacts with what we see and hear onscreen.
