the sound of television in the Pacific region

Mark Evans

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Long the poor relative to film sound, television sound has often found itself written off, or not written about at all (see Negus and Street 2002). Despite the seminal work of Tagg (1979) few others have taken up the baton of television sound studies. Indeed, even within television studies proper there has been little attention paid to sound – in much the same way as was sound went ignored in film studies for decades and decades.
