Emancipation of Sound

The established elements of Feature productions have been words, music, actualities, and effects.

The established elements of Feature productions have been words, music, actualities, and effects.

It took almost 50 years of Feature work before we began to understand that in between and all around these elements there is something essential, even if you sometimes cannot hear it: the space, the sound, the breathing of a production, the undiscovered continent of radio which we have undertaken to conquer step by step.

Emancipation of Sound includes a few German audio excerpts which you'll find translations of in the Extras section below.
