Lesson ObjectivesBy the end of the lesson you should all be able to:<br />List at least 4 types of sound used in TV dramas.<br />Recognise the sounds used in a TV drama clip and discuss the effect they have.<br />Relate the use of sound in a TV drama clip to the representations that are produced. <br />
  3. 3. Listen to the following sound clips. What do they make you think about? What mood/feelings do you attach to them?<br />Sound clip 1<br />Sound clip 2 & 3<br />
  4. 4. Understanding how music can help create “meaning”<br />Enhance the audience's emotional experience / providing emotional focus<br />Underlining psychological refinements - the unspoken thoughts of a character, or the unseen implications of a situation<br />Building a sense of continuity (moving in, out and Bridging scenes)<br />Underpinning the theatrical build-up of a scene, and rounding it off with a sense of finality<br />
  5. 5. Understanding how music can help create “meaning”<br />Character representation / identification (Good Vs Evil e.g. Star Wars)<br />Setting the location<br />Setting the period<br />Paralleling the action<br />Creating a more convincing atmosphere of space and time<br />Serving as a kind of neutral background filler<br />
  6. 6. KEY SOUND TERMINOLOGY<br />Soundtrack - the recorded sound element of a film.<br />Theme music/tune - a recurrent melody in the film.<br />Sound effects - sounds other than dialogue or music made artificially.<br />Ambient sound - buzz and/or surrounding sounds.<br />Dialogue - speech.<br />
  7. 7. KEY SOUND TERMINOLOGY<br />Voiceover - narration in a film not accompanied by a synchronised image of the speaker forming the words.<br />Direct address - when characters speak directly to the camera i.e. the audience.<br />Diegetic sound – any sound that has an onscreen source and belongs to the world of the film.<br />Non-diegeticsound – any sound that does not have an onscreen source & characters onscreen do NOT hear it e.g. some voiceovers, music.<br />
  8. 8. KEY SOUND TERMINOLOGY<br />Sound bridges – any sound/s that continue from one shot to another. They help create a smooth transition from one shot to another. In this way the sound is said to be enhancing the continuity of the film.<br />Parallel sound – sound that complements the image track. Sound & image seem to reflect each other.<br />Contrapuntal sound – sound that does not complement or fit with the image track.<br />
  9. 9. Student activity:<br />Watch CSI clip and make notes (sound/signified)<br />In pairs, compare the notes you have made and consider the effect the sound in the clip has. Think about:<br />What does it emphasise?<br />What does it tell us about place and the characters?<br />Using your notes, write a paragraph summarising the sound elements from the clip and the effect they have.<br />
  10. 10. Student activity<br />Now improve your paragraph<br />Incorporate key terminology<br />
