And: sound makes the picture more vivid: Does something happen far away, does it come from the side, fly over us, do we hear through a wall or reflected from a surface of water?
How present is the person who speaks? Does music happen in film because it is really played in film - or is it there to pass on an emotion that we want to convey?
Rupert's studies in musicology and comparative studies, his own recording studio - this background helps with the exchange with the sound departments like sound design, composer and mixing.
Speaking one language speeds up the processes. Where does music or sound design advance emotion, and in what form?What are the possibilities for musicians or sound designers?
