Book is good condition. It’s concept and vocabulary expanding. Chion teaches us that also creativity has got rules and we’ve got to follow these rules to find the way to realize our ideas in the right way.

If you are, or want to be, a sound editor, designer or mixer, you have to read and study this book before learning any software secret: I use this book to bring the great research made by this great composer, filmmaker and teacher to my Sound Design course students.

Clearly written, with well thought out and insightful topics. One person found this helpful. I definitely recommend this for anyone who wants to get into audiovisual studies. It’s not too technical so someone like me with no film background can get into it and yet someone without a music background could likely read it as well. You may need to do some research of the film examples Chion uses if you are not familiar with them.


The translation is excellent. Good information though written in a wordy style that I disliked. Could have been shorter and had better headings to bring out the structure and information.
