The scope of
focuses on the aural elements whichcombine with moving images. It regards the sounds which accompanythe visuals not as a combination ofdisparate disciplines, but as a unifiedand coherent entity. It assumes that irrespective ofindustrialdeterminants, the soundtrack is perceived as a continuum by theaudience; that music, dialogue, effects and atmospheres are instrumentsin the sonification ofthe film, analogous perhaps to the strings, brass,woodwinds and percussion in an orchestra. The journal is rigorousacademically yet accessible to all interested readers.
