Abstract: 200-400 words
This doctoral dissertation focus on the role of sound in art since its inception in the 19th century through its evolution as an independent art practice by the second half of the 20th century. Within these studies, the author places emphasis on radiophonic art and examines all of Samuel Beckett’s radio plays: All That Fall, Embers, Words and Music, Rough for Radio I, Cascando, and Rough for Radio II, written between 1956 and 1962. After her analysis, made directly to BBC’s and The Samuel Beckett Festival of Radio Plays’ sound productions, Sanchez links Beckett’s radio plays to the radiophonic art that emerged in the mid-20th century.
