Sound Theory (The Clouds)

Godard and Sound

In her book “Godard and Sound”, cinema scholar Albertine Fox elaborates on the deep engagement that filmmaker Jean Luc Godard has with the domain of sound. Although the role of Godard as an innovator in the domain of film sound has been widely acknowledged, this work is relevant in showing how Godard pushes the boundaries of what Fox labels “acoustic spectatorship”. It prompts to consider Godard as an encompassing media artist for whom the dimension of the acoustic renewed the ways to think our possible engagement with the audiovisual.
