TL;DR: The authors argue that most films are not made merely to be seen; they are also made to be heard, and that there are several distinct arts of sound in film, some of which are aesthetic and some of them are functional.
Abstract: My goal in this chapter is threefold. First, I argue that film is, at least partly, an art of sound. Most films are not made merely to be seen; they are also made to be heard. This offers an alternative to traditional accounts of film, which take film to be an essentially visual artform, and it suggests new directions for research in philosophy of film. Second, I argue that there are several distinct arts of sound in film. Some of these arts, like film music, are “aesthetic” arts; others, like sound effects, are “functional” arts. Still others, like sound design, are both functional and aesthetic. Third, I consider and reply to the objection that the arts of sound in film cannot be arts at all, because they are all functional.

TL;DR: In this paper, auteur analyse cette opposition telle qu'elle s'exprime a travers une critique de la technique dans son rapport au reel and travers une conception de la pensee et de la perception du spectateur de cinema.
Abstract: Le probleme de la mediation sonore passe par une opposition entre representation et reproduction. L'auteur analyse cette opposition telle qu'elle s'exprime a travers une critique de la technique dans son rapport au reel et a travers une conception de la pensee et de la perception du spectateur de cinema. Cette analyse fournit l'occasion d'une reevaluation des positions theoriques de Bela Balazs sur le son au cinema.
