The Unstruck Sound is a science fiction exploration of the future of the Tartu region in 2074.

In 2024, internationally renowned UK artists’ group Blast Theory will undertake an interdisciplinary, transnational, and transgenerational project called The Unstruck Sound. It is a collaborative work with large-scale participation exploring radical possible responses to the climate emergency that will look for unexpected future possibilities and bring them vividly to life. The Unstruck Sound will invite young people and elders from across Southern Estonia to share their ideas. Five young people will be given the task to interview 25 elders about life in 1974 and explore the possibilities for society 50 years in the future. By thinking backwards 50 years, they will create a platform to then imagine 50 years forwards. As a result, Blast Theory artists and future experts will develop the script for a short science fiction film to be shot at locations in the region in collaboration with the Estonian film production company Homeless Bob Production. State-of-the-art visual effects will be used to create an inspiring and amazing vision of Tartu and Southern Estonia 50 years from today, in 2074. The vision may be dystopian or utopian: but it will show how citizens have adapted to the threats and found new forms of resilience, i.e., their very own Arts of Survival.
