Tears, Fears and Flashes considers the relationship between interpersonal understanding and propagandist rhetoric with respect to an audio-visual aesthetic experience. It speculates on the ethical implications of this difficult but often present relationship.
The work examines the conditions under which different conscious sonic rhetoric may constitute
particular interpersonal modes capable of yielding or destroying mutual understanding of one another, as well as exploring the role of sound, language and spatial voyeurism in this process.
Related themes, such as power/control, chronotope, interruption, lingua franca, sovereignty, bicamerality, discontinuity and love are investigated and speculated on.
