Sound, Speech, Music, Soviet Films, Post-Soviet Cinema
Sound, Speech, Music in Soviet and Post-Soviet Cinema, declares Masha Salazkina in her bold introduction, is a collection of essays that seeks to bring the “sonic turn” to Russian and Soviet cinema (as its much criticized “logocentrism” has been reproduced unwittingly in scholarship) and to foster an overdue dialogue between the latter and sound studies (pp. 1–3). It is important not to conflate completely these distinct but intimately related aims.
