“*Special issue of /The Soundtrack/ on ‘Sound and Music in Emerging
Audiovisual Media’*

*
*

At a time when technology routinely alters audiovisual media at the
levels of production, distribution and reception, this theme issue of
/The Soundtrack/ will consider the impact of the digital landscape on
the various relationships between sound, music and moving images. The
issue aims to bring together scholars and practitioners with expertise
in sound studies, digital media and music, in order to explore topics
such as: tech-influenced developments in the music video, the emergence
of the ‘visual album’ format, and sound quality on streaming platforms
and in virtual reality and reworked media.

For example, how does the recent popularity of lip-syncing as
entertainment fit with previous models of audiovisual synchronisation?
Does this trend, which includes viral YouTube videos and the show /Lip
Sync Battle/ (2015—), complicate previous scholarship on the
relationship between the voice and the body on the soundtrack, such as
Rick Altman’s (1980) analysis of ‘cinema as ventriloquism’? What is the
sonic impact of the shift towards consuming moving image media on sites
such as Netflix, and using laptops and portable devices? How have
technological developments facilitated a new wave of music videos; such
as Björk’s 360-degree virtual reality video for ‘Stonemilker’ (2015)?
And why, in the words of Sony Interactive’s audio director, Garry
Taylor, can badly implemented audio ‘seriously hinder people’s
acceptance of their virtual reality’?

Reflecting on these changes, articles will ideally reassess the
relevance of conclusions previously drawn about the links between sound,
music and moving images, while using broader theories of technology and
digital culture to develop modified approaches for analysing these
links. Authors are welcome to generate their own research topic,
although submissions which address the following subjects are
particularly encouraged:

-         New trends in audiovisual synchronisation

-         New developments in the music video

-         The relationship between ‘visual albums’ and cinema

-         Sound and digital streaming

-         Sound and reworked media, such as audiovisual essays*
