p.20   Interviewing Arthur Piantadosi and discussing his work as mixer on Marooned (1969): "The producer said, "I don't want any music at all." The director said, "When we're out in space we're in a vacuum, we can't hear any effects." The editor kept saying "You've got to do something, you've got to do something!"   Added by: Mark Grimshaw-Aagaard
p.29   Frank Warner (credits include Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977)) catalogued his sound FX library by colour: "Red to me was more of a hard, mean sound; blue could be more passive. Green could be pastoral, very light or very airy." The descriptions attached to colours could vary from picture to picture.   Added by: Mark Grimshaw-Aagaard
p.142   Ben Burtt (discussing Star Wars (1977)) and the problem of sound in space or not: "Let's go for what's emotionally right. We'll put in a sound if we feel we need it for impact or for dramatic value."   Added by: Mark Grimshaw-Aagaard
p.143   Ben Burtt (discussing Star Wars (1977)): "A lot of creative decisions were made by searching for sounds that were linked with certain emotional, familiar things in everyday life. ... It became very important to find sounds I felt the audience would associate with certain emotional dimensions. ... They don't know it, but they have all kinds of little buttons that can be pressed. If you press the right button, it will make then feel a certain way."   Added by: Mark Grimshaw-Aagaard
p.242   Interviewing Gary Rydstrom (credits include Terminator 2 and Jurassic Park): "When kids make sound effects to talk about things, those aural semantics come from Warner Brothers cartoons."   Added by: Mark Grimshaw-Aagaard
