Walter Murch Essay on Sound and filmof Thomas - 17 Jan 2008 13:52:00 This very interesting essay of Walter Murch, the sound editor and Oscargekrönten Cutter (usof "The Godfather," "THX 1138", "Apocalypse Now" or "Cold Mountain") is of the relationship of Sound and Picture. Starting with our first sense impressions, the sounds which we use as embryos in the womb and perceive the importance of silence, the discovery of the relationship seen and heard consciously uses this knowledge to the dubbing of the movie. The aim is not just slavishly sound dubbing the Picture to be creative but irritations and ambiguities to create. Murch explained on the basis of video - and sound examples of the famous helicopter attack in "Apocalypse Now" his philosophy of sound design: how it comes from a multitude of soundtracks the sound of the scene has mixed and what principles he followed.

Superinteressant - his theory of how sound effects of various types can be stacked on top of each other without all the noise is about - and the helicopter attack in Apocalypse Now is a good example :-)
