Sonic Signature: Approaches to Film Sound

Sonic Signature: Approaches to Film Sound
Sonic Signature: Approaches to Film Sound
Cinematography captures a picture of the world, but film sound creates a world. These two films– one, an experimental biography of a pioneer of experimental music, the other, an invaluable primer on the history of sonic innovation in cinema–offer vastly different understandings of the possibilities of the soundtrack. Both, however, reveal how innovative spirits and changes in technology echo across generations of sound artists working with the moving image.
