Image sound relations from Jeremy Butler
by Critical Commons Manager

A series of image-sound experiments using an old Dodge commercial and various sound tracks

This series of clips presents a Do-it-Yourself Sound Exercise from Jeremy Butler's book Television: Critical Methods and Applications. A 2-minute, public-domain TV commercial (circa 1960) is combined with various music clips to demonstrate the impact sound has on image. Students are encouraged to provide their own music to see how the image can be manipulated.
