Lowering the boom : critical studies in film sound / edited by Jay Beck and Tony Grajeda

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.

AUSTRALIA Summary: Over the last decade popular cinema has employed a variety of forms of music. These include traditional composed screen music, pre-recorded music tracks, mixes of music and sound effects and various combinations of these. In response to this, film music scholars have developed new ways of understanding and analysing the role of film music in relation to genre, narrative and creative roles and inter-relations in film music scoring. 'Reel Tracks' provides a series of insightful analyses of recent mainstream Australian cinema. Following the editor's careful exploration of film music's relation to national cinema culture and identity, individual chapters offer stimulating and diverse accounts of music in films such as Rabbit-Proof Fence (2002), Lantana (2001), Chopper (2000) and Paradise Road (1997). The chapters in this volume also address broader themes such as the musical representation of sexuality in cinema and music's representation of regions, localities and ethnicity. Reel Tracks is an important contribution to both Australian film studies and the international understanding of the role of music in contemporary western cinema. This volume is targeted to both cinema studies readers and film music students, teachers and aficionados.

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.
