Esta obra presenta el balance de una investigacion sobre las relaciones entre el sonido y la imagen que el autor viene elaborando desde hace quince anos y de la que aqui ofrece una nueva formulacion. En su opinion, las peliculas sonoras, los videoclips o los programas de television no se ven sino que se audioven. En otras palabras, los objetos audiovisuales dan lugar a una ...more

I wish the class I took in college on film sound was half as good as this book. Michel Chion is a French musique-concrete composer and film theorist specializing in sound. In one of the only English translations of his work, Audio-Vision summarizes Chion's attempts to systematize the devices of film sound and come up with a kind of working grammar that can be used to "read" a film soundtrack. Really interesting stuff.

An important work in cinema theory, largely ignored until recent years. In contrast with mainstream film theorists, Chion treats film sound as of primary importance in the phenomenology of cinema. Audio-Vision is not intended to be a phenomenology of film; Chion provides a framework and taxonomy within which film sound might be studied critically. A classic and highly accessible treatment.

A pretty clear summary of some major ways that image and sound work together. I found the ideas around added value and animation especially useful.

Made me think about sound in a whole different way, but I thought it got quite technical and obscure for me in parts. Maybe I wasn't patient enough to really get the full meaning out of it. Definitely worth reading if you are interested in movies or making movies at all, unique perspective we don't often talk about.

The fact that dude's a composer and director as well as a film sound academic gives the book a systemic and comprehensive quality. A great book that will enrich the way you experience and think about films.

*THE* book on sound for film. Chion's acute observations of sound design and music and their use in films to reinforce stories and to suspend the audience's disbelief is unlike any other book on the subject.

while it's sometimes a bit boring, it is excellent audio theory, particularly for the moving image. yes, tech theory- not tech instruction! wish there were more good books like this.

only adding this b/c golan told me too.

i had to read this for class and its pretty dry. if you're interested in the topic - sound in film - you'll really enjoy it. if not, skip it.

A fascinating overview of Chion's film sound theory concepts. Useful terminology with a clean and easily comprehensible translation by Gorbman.

Pretty intriguing. Any French scholar is good to read, and when the material is as interesting as this is... you simply can't go wrong.
