Indiana University Press is pleased to announce the recent publication of:
 
Beyond Dolby (Stereo)
Cinema in the Digital Sound Age
Mark Kerins
 
"A breakthrough in film sound scholarship. Kerins does a masterful job of
chronicling the complex history, theory, and production considerations
associated with digital surround sound. . . . [His] work fills a gap in the
sound field, while providing an essential contribution to cinema studies,
cultural studies, and new media scholarship." ‹William Whittington,
University of Southern California
 
Since digital surround sound technology first appeared in cinemas 20 years
ago, it has spread from theaters to homes and from movies to television,
music, and video games. Yet even as 5.1 has become the standard for
audiovisual media, its impact has gone unexamined. Drawing on works from the
past two decades, as well as dozens of interviews with sound designers,
mixers, and editors, Mark Kerins uncovers how 5.1 surround has affected not
just sound design, but cinematography and editing as well. Beyond Dolby
(Stereo) includes detailed analyses of Fight Club, The Matrix, Hairspray,
Disturbia, The Rock, Saving Private Ryan, and Joy Ride, among other films,
to illustrate the value of a truly audiovisual approach to cinema studies.
