Web essay with video content on the various permutations of _Laura_ story through multiple media.  _Laura_ is discussed as a parable of information exchange, with a focus on how sound is transmitted through and across multiple film texts, repetition and desire, noise and the cosmic.

Description (in original language): 
Pull Quotes: 

Laura is a parable of molding information.
-- Anytime information reaches a certain point of saturation, anytime information cannot be contained, it becomes noise. (Just as "information wants to be free" so too does it tend toward noise, before moving onto more ethereal realms)
-- Laura-- intersecting with histories of radio, voice on film, popular song, modernist and postmodernist storytelling, television and the internet-- exists in a liminal area between noise and non-noise, repetition and renewal, information and perception, human and machine.
