This introduction maps out the methodological and intellectual issues at stake in the study of “cinematic listening.” The first half argues that the vagueness of the “cinematic” and the elusiveness of “listening” can be productive if, instead of attempting to define what cinematic listening is, we focus on analyzing how changing notions of the “cinematic” and of “listening” have shaped each other through time, exploring cinema’s changing relationship with listening cultures past, present, and imagined. The second half offers an overview of the structure and content of this volume. It sums up how, by means of engaging with the archaeologies, aesthetics, and extensions of cinema’s aural protocols, each volume section contributes to our understanding of how listening to film is mediated by particular texts, places, and practices, and how listening cinematically extends beyond the texts, places, and practices typically associated with film.
