Qualities

“The emotional, physical and aesthetic value of a sound is linked not only to the causal explanation we attribute to it but also to its own qualities of timbre and texture, to its own personal vibration. So just as directors and cinematographers (even those who will never make abstract films) have everything to gain by refining their knowledge of visual materials and textures, we can similarly benefit from disciplined attention to the inherent qualities of sounds.”

-Michel Chion

  1. Great quote. Michel Chion’s book ‘Audio-Vision’ helped me see audio in a different way and I can’t recommend it enough to filmmakers, sound designers especially.
