John Harris has always sought out the bigger perspective of things, the sense of the Future, the reality of the Space in which we find ourselves. The infinite, luminous void surrounding us is the stuff from which we are made and has been an endless source of inspiration to him.
In this film, John talks about the origins of the imagery in his work, and how much of it found its natural home in the genre of science fiction.
There is now a book, The Art of John Harris; Beyond the Horizon, which contains most the work shown here and much more.

Post-war Britain rebuilt itself on a wave of scientific and industrial breakthroughs that culminated in the cultural revolution of the 1960’s. In this atmosphere was born the Electronic Music Studios (EMS), a radical group of avant-garde electronic musicians who utilized technology and experimentation to compose a futuristic electronic sound-scape for the New Britain.
What The Future Sounded Like colours in a lost chapter in music history, uncovering a group of composers and innovators who harnessed technology and new ideas to re-imagine the boundaries of music and sound. Features music from Pink Floyd, Hawkwind, Roxy Music and The Emperor Machine.
