"Acoustic Shadows: The Sounds of History"

  • Sound and Storytelling Conference Chapman University Orange, CA U.S.A. (map)

While much scholarship is dedicated to the ways that the past is visualized (the influence of paintings and early photography, for example), the ways that film retrieves the sounds of the past has not received enough attention. This paper will examine the ways that the past is recreated through film sound and music, following similar principles and frameworks used to recreate the look of the past.
