More > performances are fading away. Boston Thomas, an aging former punk rocker and professor of music history at a beleaguered academic institution, is struggling to accept his obsolescence when he discovers an underground movement of musicians led by a charismatic and nomadic woman. She, and the various musicians Boston then encounters, have something in common: a seemingly coincidental allusion in their music to Handel’s Israel in Egypt, which Thomas Edison captured in one of the earliest sound recordings in human history. As their relationship deepens, Boston and the mysterious woman build a movement in the city’s forgotten urban center. The Lost Chord asks how artists can evolve in the face of extinction to reclaim their roles as explorers of the progressive and sublime - not to fear change, but to personify it.< Less

No longer self-talk, it began to politicize the use of film dialogue. Now, the monologue was an argument, a summation, an assault. The film monologue was transfigured from self-assertion to self-actualization. It was now a potent dramatic tool again, fresh, invigorating and powerful. The 50 monologues collected in this book represent the scope of its potential: from the dramatic, political, feminist to the comical, emotional and fantastical. Each monologue is introduced as to historical context, set-up and character.< Less
