Dang! Some of the text is too small to print on the back of my business card.

Re: A message for all of you

Oh yes, I realize that. What I mean is that, if printed in 4 colors, at the size of a business card, the font size will make some of the text too small to read, or even to print clearly.

It's a good Venn diagram, though. Well done!

That rather seems to deprecate the purpose of an audio forum. And it's certainly not true in the case of music!

Agree 100%. Audio-only communication/entertainment (radio) has been with us for nearly 100 years.

OTOH video-only entertainment (silent movies) has not been accepted by audiences for nearly 100 years.

Re: A message for all of you

The quote comes from my post, and yes I agree it is inappropriate for this audio forum, but I do post on several other forums here on DV info where it is appropriate. I can take my knuckles being wrapped on this forum - so sorry, but the quote stays.

Have a great and noise free Christmas

Today, you tend to find that these are high end commercials, movies were never silent, they always ran with musical accomplishment. It was a good source of employment for musicians before the talkies.

Re: A message for all of you

Is mine the only household in the world where the TV is sometimes watched with the sound muted?
Hitchcock films still work (but maybe that's because we've watched them so often before).

On the other hand , Powerpoint presentations sans sound are foisted on audiences daily all over the world .

Nope , I regularly have something on TV with no sound and music playing on my hi-fi at the same time :)

Unfortunately I didn't, it was posted on my Home page through Facebook.

1) "Foisted" being the operative word here. Have you EVER heard someone say "Hey, Reggie is presenting his new PowerPoint over in conference room 307, lets go see it!"
2) Likely 99.3% of all PowerPoint presentations are accompanied by a live commentary from the presenter, droning though it may be.
3) How many of those PowerPoint audiences do you think would leave if they could get away with it. I'm sure most of them could find something more entertaining or productive with that 20 minutes out of their lifespan.

That would probably be true of the same presenter, with or without PowerPoint. Contrary to what some presenters think, PowerPoint does not make a boring presentation less boring.

Actually I think the quote is an over-generalization. It depends on the medium: a painting doesn't need music; music doesn't need visuals. Would you rather watch a symphony with the sound muted, or listen to a mime with the video turned off?

However, movies and video are the culmination of a progression: oral tradition (and music), written word (and music), drama (or music, or both combined). And so it seems to me that most writers continue to create scripts with a strong verbal component; therefore the hearing of the script is usually more important than the visual elements. (Of course I still read books, so my views may not be representative of the younger generation.)
