The Sound of Pictures: Listening to the Movies, from Hitchcock to High Fidelity

Andrew Ford

The Sound of Pictures is an illuminating journey through the soundtracks of more than 400 movies. How do filmmakers play with sound? And how does that affect the way we watch their films? Whether pop or classical, sweeping or sparse, soundtracks play a crucial role in how we experience cinema. Andrew Ford listens to these and to other sounds that can be even more evocative: the sounds of nature, of cities and of voices. He speaks to famous directors and composers about their approaches to music, discovering radically different views about how much to use and when. Whether you’re a film-buff or a music lover, The Sound of Pictures will change the way you listen to movies forever. Includes interviews with Peter Weir, Peter Greenaway, Bruce Beresford, Sally Potter, Ennio Morricone, Howard Shore and others.
