He considers the effects of evolving audiovisual technologies such as widescreen, multitrack sound, and Dolby stereo on audio-vision, influences of sound on the perception of space and time, and contemporary forms of audio-vision embodied in music videos, video art, and commercial television.

Call No: 634 LOW Author: Beck, Jay (ed); Grajeda, Tony (ed) Source: US Place: Urbana Publisher: University of Illinois Press PubDate: c2008 PhysDes: x, 342 p. 24cm Subject: SOUND; SOUND EDITING; SOUND EFFECTS Summary: "As the first collection of new work on sound and cinema in over a decade, Lowering the Boom addresses the expanding field of film sound theory and its significance in rethinking historical models of film analysis. The contributors consider the ways in which musical expression, scoring, voice-over narration, and ambivalent noise affect identity formation and subjectivity. Lowering the Boom also analyses how shifting modulation of the spoken word in cinema results in variations in audience interpretation. Introducing new methods of thinking about the interaction of sound and music in films, this volume also details avant-garde film sound, which is characterised by a distinct break from the narratively based sound practices of mainstream cinema. This interdisciplinary, global approach to the theory and history of film sound opens the eyes and ears of film scholars, practioners, and students to film's true audio-vosual nature.

The technique of documentary film production / by W. Hugh Baddeley ; with a preface by Paul Rotha
London: Focal Press, 1975.
Call No: 761 BAD Author: Baddeley, Hugh W. Edition: 4th rev. ed Place: London Publisher: Focal Press PubDate: 1975 PhysDes: 282 p. : ill. ; 23 cm Series: The library of communication techniques Subject: BUDGETING; CAMERAS; CINEMATOGRAPHY; DISTRIBUTION; DOCUMENTARIES; DOCUMENTARY FILMS; EDITING; FILMMAKING; INSURANCE, FILM; LIGHTING; LOCATION FINDING; LOCATION SHOOTING; MUSIC AND THE CINEMA; PRE-PRODUCTION; POST-PRODUCTION; PRODUCTION; PRODUCTION COSTS; SCRIPTWRITING; SOUNDTRACKS; SOUND EDITING; SOUND RECORDING Summary: "Hugh Baddeley has carried out further revisions of this book since the last edition which he enlarged by nearly forty pages. He has taken into consideration the needs of television and the text now contains interviews with well-known TV producers and key TV personnel. It deals with every aspect of documentary and factual film production. Intended for the working professional, the trainee, and the student, amateurs too will find the breadth and scope of the subject stimulating. Nowadays when the film serves not merely as a tool of entertainment, but increasingly as a tool with a variety of eminently practical jobs to do, more people than ever before become involved with film production.
Public relations officers, sales managers, television executives, those in charge of works film units, organisations using films for fund raising for charities, and members of expeditions will find here vital information. The means and methods of producing factual films are dealt with step-by-step from the initial idea to the making of release prints and their distribution. The typical problems of the "documentary" - shooting on distant and remote locations, as well as the difficulties of providing effective lighting outside the studio - are presented in practical terms. Sound recording, both under studio conditions and on location, is covered in detail. The techniques involved in laying and mixing multiple recordings to produce the final master track are described. Especially valuable are those practical suggestions that the author is able to offer from his own long personal experience. These range from budgeting and obtaining insurance cover to dealing with foreign customs." -- BOOK JACKET Notes: First ed. published 1963; Includes index ISBN: 0240509158; 0240509293 (pbk.)

Vocal Tracks : performance and sound media / Jacob Smith

Call No: 244 SMI Author: Smith, Jacob Source: US Place: Berkeley Publisher: University of California Press PubDate: c2008 PhysDes: viii, 294 p. : ill. ; 23 cm. Subject: VOICES; SOUND; SOUND EDITING; SOUND EFFECTS; SOUND RECORDING Summary: "This entertaining and innovative book focuses on vocal performance styles that developed in tandem with the sound technologies of the phonograph, radio, and film. Writing in a clear and lively manner, Jacob Smith looks at these media and their industries through the lens of performance, bringing to light a fascinating nexus of performer, technology and audience. Combining film aesthetics, cultural histories of technologies and industries, and theories of performance, Smith convincingly connects disparate and largely neglected niches to explore the development of a modern vocal performance. He analyzes an astoningshly diverse range of media texts - phonographic laughing records, broadcast laugh tracks, acting styles found in radio melodramas, singing styles heard on recordings of popular music, and secret recordings of prank phone calls - to illustrate how performance styles developed in response to technological mediation.
