   "...sound alone is not space creating."

Any sound (i.e. real sound that is recorded) always has some quality of its space recorded with it. "In this way, in the sound film, the fixed, immutable, permanent distance between spectator and actor is eliminated not only visually ... but acoustically as well. Not only as spectators, but as listeners, too, we are transferred from our seats to the space in which the events depicted on the screen are taking place."   Added by: Mark Grimshaw
Keywords:   Space
   "The sole material of the wireless play being sound, the result of the cessation of sound is not silence but just nothing."   Added by: Mark Grimshaw
Keywords:   Silence
   "We accept seen space as real only when it contains sounds as well, for these give it the dimension of depth."   Added by: Mark Grimshaw
Keywords:   Space
   Points out that the ear is less educated than the eye and that, although more nuances can be distinguished by the ear, the eye is better at deriving meaning. We often see without hearing (usually at a difference) but rarely hear without seeing.   Added by: Mark Grimshaw
