As soon as I was approached about the project I knew I had to contribute. The Blade Runner film was likely my introduction to dystopian science fiction and music that relied heavily on synthesizers. When I got older, I became a huge fan of Philip K. Dick’s work. I have taught the novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? in my courses and shown my students Blade Runner.

For my track, I took my inspiration from the novel. For me, the small, but essential detail that humans dial up their emotions blurs the line between human and replicant in a way only P.K.D. could have imagined. My contribution, “Dial M for Melancholy”, is an hommage to that detail from the novel.
