Reviews"Beyond the existing canon of critical reception theory on Film Sound, Larkin’s work is a significant expansion of an emerging specialty: the history of the post-production of mainstream films and the art history which considers the collective authorship of soundtracks by industrial artisans." --David Stone, Professor of Sound Design, Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), Academy Award© winner for Best Sound Effects Editing, Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992), and author of Hollywood Sound Design and Moviesound Newsletter: A Case Study of the End of the Analog Age. (2017, Focal Press) "The evolution of sound from its inception in The Jazz Singer in 1927 to its present subliminal importance in film is clearly highlighted in this text. Larkin’s readable history of this on-going development contributes richly to the collaborative art of post-production." --John J. Michalczyk, Director, Film Studies Program, Boston College, USA
