[A] creative look at sound in the cinema.(R. Blackwood Choice)
For two decades, Michel Chion has been asking basic questions about cinema sound and coming up with startling, seminal answers. It all started with The Voice in Cinema and a simple question: why are so many films built around voices separated from the image of their sources? Elementary questions, creative responses, and clear prose make this one of the few books on film sound capable of simultaneously satisfying scholars and students alike. How wonderful to have The Voice in Cinema available, finally, in such a readable English translation.(Rick Altman, author of A Theory of Narrative and Silent Film Sound)
