Description - Audio-Vision by Michel Chion
One of the world's foremost experts on film sound presents a reassessment of the cinema in light of the role that sound has played. Chion demonstrates the reality of the "audio-visual" experience and examines such issues as: the effects of music in the sound track; how sound influences the preception of movement and speed; and the new relationship between sound and image produced by Dolby stereo.
