Yet the aural dimensions of cinema can sometimes affect us even more deeply than the images on screen, according to Dr. Elsie Walker, associate professor of film studies in Salisbury University’s English Department. The editor of SU’s international journal Literature/Film Quarterly spent five years researching her new book, Understanding Sound Tracks Through Film Theory, recently released by Oxford University Press.
