"The sound of pictures is an illuminating journey through the soundtracks of more than 400 films. How do filmmakers play with sound? And how does that affect the way we watch their movies? Sweeping or sparse, classical or pop, music can play a crucial role in our cinematic experience. Other sounds can be even more evocative: the sounds of nature, of cities and of voices."--Back cover
Try whistling this : writings about music by Andrew Ford( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Try Whistling This, join a perceptive critic on a pleasurable journey through music and musicians, ideas and history. Andrew Ford traces the concept of dirty dancing back to 1610, marvels at the weirdness of Percy Grainger and considers the decision of Wilhelm Furtwangler to keep conducting under the Nazis. He explores the intersection of words and music, the bugbear of Australian musical identity, and the fundamental importance, in music and in life, of listening. There are essays based on Ford's acclaimed radio series Music and Fashion, as well as a set of illuminating examinations of music-makers from Mozart to Shostakovich, Cole Porter to Bob Dylan. Try Whistling This offers another take on history, told through music, and shows a brilliant communicator in action
