Roger Crittenden: Sound and Memory

17 April 2009

We all have a reservoir of aural memory, some of which is likely to be shared by our fellow human beings but a part of that memory bank is unique to our experience. This will be a personal exploration of the complexities of emotional responses to sound and how filmmakers have to differentiate the personal and the universal in attempting to use sound and music to connect with the audience.
