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.

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.

Recommended to malic by: deborah stratman: film genius.
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.
