Adoor: Music gives new dimension to films

Staff Reporter

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Director Adoor Gopalakrishnan has said that it is his love for theatre that landed him into the world of films.

Interacting with students at a valedictory function of the sound engineering workshop organised by the Centre for Development of Imaging Technology (C-DIT) here on Sunday, he explained how he decided to pursue a course at the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII), Pune, after mistaking screenplay writing for play writing.

Talking about the use of sounds in films, he said providing background sound or music is not what is intended through sound mixing. ‘‘Sound used in a particular scene should compliment the cinematic situation and context of the scene. Use of sound in films is more psychological than natural, depending on the effect the film-maker wants to create through sound,'' said Mr. Gopalakrishnan who pioneered in the use of natural sounds in his second feature film ‘Kodiyettam,' which has no background score.

Mr. Gopalakrishnan, however, said that music, if used judiciously and creatively, could add a whole new dimension to a film.
