Sound: Dialogue, Music, and Effects

    Sound in cinema is a fascinating area that is just beginning to get the attention it deserves. This innovative book highlights the workers who collaborated inside and outside Hollywood to produce dialogue, sound effects and music for motion pictures. It demonstrates the transformative powers of sound as they shape the specific ways in which film meaning is made. It interrogates the statement that 'the silent screen was never silent', shows how Altman & Malick pushed the boundares of dialogue, what Dolby did to movies, how Walter Murch, Alfred Newman, John Williams and many more scored and composed and how cinematic sound is adapting to digital exhibition on computer screens and smartphones. The overall objective is to make it hard for us to see films in the same way again.
