THE FILM SENSE.
Going back to the work of Eisenstein, Barthes was intrigued by this third meaning in addition to informative and symbolic nar- ratives so prevalent in his films. This is why: Firstly, only the audience is in a posi- tion to perceive the two phenomena film and music as one merged audiovisual 5.
Live film scoring and improvisational practices expression the improvisers are too involved in their own performance to reach the same balance.
Secondly, the audience will have an impact on the film score with their presence in an improvisational situation, where audience reaction and atten- tiveness will affect the musical outcome.
The process can be paralleled to a con- tinuous test screening with a twist: the audience is here empowered with real-time critique impact of the audiovisual spectacle, where their reaction projects onto the improvising musicians. Perhaps performing live music to film produces a super-tentative audience, ready to process even the most unat- tainable score.
The individual viewer is ideally able to fill up a well of sound and visual memories from what is being presented, synchronizing sound and images through personal choice.
The acousmatic may for example bring out emotional responses, based on a particular moment in the past where a similar sound was present forms of subjective associa- tion. With relation to the Potemkin project we frequently play with the use of signified music a clean sounding saxo- phone for example , but it is often with our use of acousmatic sound material that we get the most interesting audience responses, where the use of initially un-signified Jazz-Hitz, 01 , pp. Live film scoring and improvisational practices sounds demand greater participation of individual perception, association and imagi- nation.
Acousmatic may also refer to signified sources, but where the visual source is unavailable. An example of this would be film composer Ennio Mor- ricone, who in spaghetti westerns such as The Good, the Bad and the Ugly , often, in a synchronized manner, ridicules the super macho concoction of gun fight- ers and villains Mickey Mousing the machismo movements of Clint Eastwood with whistles and bells. For the film improviser as well as the film composer a series of options is immediately clear in their relationship to the movie: 1.
Do a combination of the above.
The original intention of a scene, be it dramatic effects or a romantic mood, can be changed by the force of the music. For example, a scene with fast dramatic movement, intent on creating suspense, may, for some individual viewers, be subverted by musical parody.
On the other hand, the musical parody can also emphasise the apparent tragedy by making fun of the violence or grievance on screen Kubrick makes extensive use of this in A Clockwork Orange for example Through his music, Stock- hausen had expanded and altered even the filmmakers view on their work. We readily assume that reading a novel puts a certain demand on the reader, as does watching a play; in terms of imagining more beyond what is being visually presented. Also, we agree that mainstream Hollywood cinema has a tendency to over-clarify the plot of their movies, to the point where the audience is pushed towards being passive viewers; e.
Benjamin, The same could be said regarding our dis- course: film and music are in a state of inertia without the audience interacting with what they see and hear.
Interacting, in the sense of actively making sense of the two different artefacts presented as one. The prohibition effects this construction and engagement by creating an obliquity between our angle of viewing and that of the characters which works to make dif- ferences of angle and scale readable as representations of different points of view , p. In other words, in watching a film we are still readers; watching from the outside. We are unable to participate physically in what we see, but still very able to engage imagi- natively.
Therefore, the interplay of the imagination in matching sound with images must also be recognized. Although, in modern mainstream cinema, most sound Jazz-Hitz, 01 , pp.

Live film scoring and improvisational practices effects are synchronized to the film, the music often dictates only an overall mood of a particular event. Indeed, music is often consciously used to make what we see less real in order for things not to be too disturbing or perhaps, too trivial. Hollywood on the other hand, thrive on escapism, and film music provides parts of the escapist illusion. If the music we perform to Battleship Potemkin is not independently valid, the film ends up calling all the shots.
Subsequently, the experience of the viewer is diminished, as it takes away the choice of matching aural and visual impressions. Furthermore, we can see the amplification of this process by the bringing together of a silent film, improvised music and an audience.
Here, as the different elements of the performance are clearer, so are the individual tasks: 1 Images provided by the film; 2 sound by the musicians; 3 and, sole perceiver of film and music as one is the individual viewer. Fine Dogme95, Rule no. As we have seen, the audio-visual stimuli if successful does not separate for the individual member of the audience. Using film lingo, improvisers might spot a structure and create mental hooks of how to manoeuvre certain structural prob- lems or limitations manifested as chords, melodic lines or idiomatic and stylistic norms.
Live film scoring and improvisational practices ing process. Based on this, musical improvisation is clearly not unknown to the film industry; however, the lack of cinematic examples also highlights how improvisational techniques are not widely utilized.
This is perhaps surprising, as musical improvisation may empower the score with a stronger sense of subjec- tive narrative, and thus enrich the filmic experience for the individual perceiver. As much as 6.

Within a shot, figures usually move laterally and the camera swivels or travels accordingly. Apologists in the s argued that this horizontality was simply natural. Our eyes are mounted side by side, and we have more eye muscles devoted to tracking objects on that axis than on the vertical one. Further, the commentators argued, painters and other graphic artists had long preferred the horizontal. In , as the emergence of sound cinema made technicians reconsider the dimensions of the image, Sergei Eisenstein proposed rethinking the rectangle.
He pointed out that Asia had strong traditions of vertical imagery, notably in the picture scrolls of China and the woodblock prints of Japan. The vertical dimension, he insisted, harbored just as many design resources as its counterpart.
In the camera, the printer, the projector, and traditional editing machines like the Moviola, the film strip moves from top to bottom, from feed reel to take-up reel.
The film sense by Sergei M. Eisenstein,
Claw and shutter seize each frame and yank it down, snicking the next one into place. And when the film strip jams or drifts out of alignment, it registers its trauma by leaping and bobbing, not yanking side to side. Paolo Gioli has gone farther. Within the golden section of the 16mm frame, many of his films expose and celebrate the vertical bias of the apparatus. In the process, he reminds us of a period of cinema history in which the technical standards were not yet fixed.
In the course of these explorations he creates, through the slithering rhythm of the film strip, new images of space, time, and corporeality. Instead, he followed the layout of the standard machine, making his pinhole cameras stand upright, some of them one meter high.
Run through the projector, however, the strip yields a spasmodic flutter, the motif jerking insistently down the frame. If Muybridge turned time into a comic-strip band, Gioli works in the other direction: an instantaneous sampling of space becomes three seconds of cinema, rendered as a pulsating vertical scan.
Because there is no standard aperture, and because the film strip is not always centered on the pinholes, we get a string of images that overlap the viewpoints Fig. The standard frame segregates space, creating an image that will not slip. Figure 1 If there are too few framelines in Film Steneopeio, Commutazione con mutazione compensates, assaulting us with an epidemic of cellular structures.
Once more the movement is mostly vertical. But as the imagery wobbles down the frame, revealing the oscillating soundtrack, perforations, scratches, hairs, clumps of dust, and blobs of color, we are obliged to notice the arbitrariness of the rectangle.
Gridwork is superimposed on the stripes and blocks in the picture.Back to top. Live film scoring and improvisational practices sounds demand greater participation of individual perception, association and imagi- nation.
The theory of "montage" or editing, developed by early Soviet filmmakers, reached its deepest expression in the writings of Sergeii Eisenstein, undeniably the most profound theorist of film art.
The sound must never be produced apart from the images or vice versa music must not be used unless it occurs where the scene is being shot Kelly, , p.

He showed that one massive patch of glowing color stacked on another could provide a powerful counterweight, could even seem seem to float upward.
What could make him happier than a film gauge that plants a perforation right on the sacred frameline? Being There.
