  • French critic and composer Michel Chion argues that watching movies is than just a visual exercise it enacts a process of audio viewing The audiovisual makes use of a wealth of tropes, devices, techniques, and effects that convert multiple sensations into image and sound, therefore rendering, instead of reproducing, the world through cinema.The first half of FilmFrench critic and composer Michel Chion argues that watching movies is than just a visual exercise it enacts a process of audio viewing The audiovisual makes use of a wealth of tropes, devices, techniques, and effects that convert multiple sensations into image and sound, therefore rendering, instead of reproducing, the world through cinema.The first half of Film, A Sound Art considers developments in technology, aesthetic trends, and individual artistic style that recast the history of film as the evolution of a truly audiovisual language The second half explores the intersection of auditory and visual realms With restless inventiveness, Chion develops a rhetoric that describes the effects of audio visual combinations, forcing us to rethink sound film He claims, for example, that the silent era which he terms deaf cinema did not end with the advent of sound technology but continues to function underneath and within later films Expanding our appreciation of cinematic experiences ranging from Dolby multitrack in action films and the eerie tricycle of Stanley Kubrick s The Shining to the way actors from different nations use their voices and words, Film, A Sound Art showcases the vast knowledge and innovative thinking of a major theorist.

    1. Chion is my homeboy. Seriously, some of most interesting and compelling theoretical stuff on film sound ever.

    2. It is always refreshing to read Chion. He is a thought-provoking theorist whose interest in sound is hugely apparent. While his broad knowledge of the history of film is somewhat daunting, I am happy to skim some of the closer reads of films I do not know—much like relaxing into Shakespeare, paying less attention to the specific words being used and more to the general intentions and themes. As a composer himself, his writing on sound is layered with lyrical interpretations and impressions. So [...]

    3. Some very interesting ideas in here (particularly about the rise of Dolby), and of course Chion has listened more closely to films than just about anyone, but I still find his non-stop impulse to categorize and compartmentalize rather unsettling. Nonetheless, he offers an unique model for how to approach films - or rather, moments from films: as aesthetic examples to be fed into his ever-expanding glossary of theoretical terms.
