Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"Sound Theory, Sound Practice" is mainly a collection of essays covering the theoretical, historical and what the author calls "Neglected Domains" or what one could call a potpourri of topics for thought and discussion.

What's great about the book is while reading it I felt like I was sitting at a roundtable discussion with some really great sound folk who'd given some thought to what this thing called "sound" is all about.

It is specifically geared to the film industry. However, as a theatre sound designer, from the topics offered in the book I found interesting insights into the craft causing a rethinking of alot of the assumptions I previously held about what sound design as a production element can bring to a show.

I also really like the author's "Baker-Dozen Terms for Sound Analysis" which when added to a vocabulary helps when talking with others (in the industry or just interested)about what makes good sound design. The terms also offer designers a starting point or even a framework for discussions with directors during concept meetings about where the design can go throughout the production process.

A good book for film and stage designers alike. Pick up a copy!
