See this Sound: Audiovisuology
Edited by Dieter Daniels, Sandra Naumann, Jan Thoben.
This massive new edition of See This Sound consists of two parts: the first, "Compendium," offers comprehensive scholarship on the relationship between images and sounds, exploring historical examples of multimedia art from Busby Berkeley and Oskar Fischinger to John Cage, Jordan Belson, Tony Conrad and Brian Eno, as well as strategies of montage, mapping and synesthetic effects. The second part, "Essays," offers in-depth studies on the historical development and theoretical framework of audiovisual culture, looking at image-sound relationships in popular culture, media aesthetics, pop music and "the musicalization of the visual arts in the twentieth century." As such, it offers an ambitious and definitive survey of the past and future of image-sound art.
