Summary
So far, the study of cinema has been overwhelmingly visual. In this book Robert Robertson presents cinema as an audiovisual medium, based on Eisenstein's ideas on the montage of music, image and sound. Robertson applies an audiovisual focus to key works by film directors such as Spike Lee, Maya Deren, David Lynch, Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, and Fritz Lang, as well as exploring the audiovisual in avant-garde animation, in landscape in cinema, and in films beyond the European tradition. Recent developments in technology have for the first time enabled practitioners to work extensively with music and sound on an equal level with the visual track, so Robertson also explores the audiovisual creative process in opera, a music/film collaboration, and in his music/films Oserake and The River That Walks. This illuminating book has relevance for practitioners in any work that involves the audiovisual, especially cinema and its future multiple forms. -- Provided by publisher
