Cinesonica free pdf Cinesonica: sounding film and video explores previously neglected and under-theorised aspects of film and video sound, drawing on detailed case study analyses of Hollywood cinema, art cinema, animated cartoons, and avant-garde film and video. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the soundtrack, and breaking away from the focus on narrative and signification that has tended to dominate the study of film sound, the book examines the way in which sound's materiality figures within audiovisual experience. Through a close examination of sound-image relations in a range of film and video forms and genres - including Warner Bros. cartoons, scratch video, and artist's film and video - Cinesonica recasts the film and video text as the meeting point of audio and visual materialities, cultural practices, and perceptual activity. Covering topics such as deconstructive film practice, the sound of old films, electronic sounds, mickey-mousing, and audiovisual synaesthetic experience, the book draws on the theoretical resources of sound studies, musicology and post-structural theory to provide an alternative to established models of film analysis. Proposing that film and video sound cannot be examined in isolation from the image, the book offers a sounding of the temporal, historical, morphological, affective and sensory dimensions of audiovisuality, and asks how sound-image relations might be considered in political terms. The interdisciplinary approach adopted by the book makes its discussion of sound of interest to those studying and working in a range of subject disciplines, including film studies, sound studies, sonic arts, cultural studies, music, and art history.
