Digetic and Nondigetic Sound

The assignment was to create a piece that dealt with sound in some fashion. An easy explanation of digetic sound is "on screen" sound, and nondigetic sound is "off screen" sound. Keeping that in mind, we were to create a piece that use strategic use of sound as a medium to experiment in. So I gathered many sound clips from movies and edited them together into a odd linear fashion. I also fashioned them with some field recordings that I had collected.
Movies used: The Truman Show, Artificial Intelligence, Sleepy Hollow, Alien, Dazed and Confused, The Rock, The Terminator, and James Bond: Tomorrow Never Dies.

This piece was created in: Contemporary Practice: FVNM Moving Image (spring semester)
