In cinema of the Hollywood studio system, there is an "emphasis placed on the 'ideology of the visible' ... Sound is something which is added to the image, but nevertheless subordinate to it--it acts, paradoxically, as a 'silent' support."
"The ineffable, intangible quality of sound requires that it be placed on the side of the emotional or the intuitive. If the ideology of the visible demands that the spectator understand the image as a truthful representation of reality, the ideology of the audible demands that there exist simultaneously a different truth and another order of reality for the subject to grasp."
"In the arguments over sound perspective, 'realism' (as an effect of the ideology of the visible) is viewed as conflicting with intelligibility".
