Sound is often considered a crucial point in moving image. How could we ever forget the piercing screams of the “Psycho” score? Or Ennio Morricone’s classic scores, which have been re-issued in the modern day in the films of Quentin Tarantino?
My aim is to try to help people to understand the quintessential importance that sound has on the way we consume film and television programmes. I will try to portray two scenes from a film and a series that I personally love. They differ in a great deal of ways, the two clips focusing on different aspects. So sit back, make yourself comfortable, and hopefully enjoy the read.
“In the same way that painting, or looking at paintings, makes you see the world in a different way, listening to interestingly arranged sounds makes you hear differently.” – Walter Murch – film editor and sound engineer.
