By on


No votes yet

Sound in cinema is a key element to understanding the authors' artistic conception. This is a session specially designed to learn a bit more about the different roles of the soundtrack in the structural film.

The filmmakers who practise the technical and aesthetic considerations of structural film work with sound from disruptive stances. Graphic manipulations on the optical soundtrack of the celluloid and alterations to ambient sound offer acoustic dialogues about noise and soundscape.
