Ritmo e audiovisivo. Una questione di metodo

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Rhythm and audiovisual. A question of method

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


[Autom. eng. transl.] This essay addresses the methodological issue of film rhythm, i.e. relating to the tools useful for understanding and describing the rhythmic dimensions in the audiovisual. I will try to take up the theme as outlined in the semiotic and filmological debates, to then necessarily deal with models of the psychology of music, and finally, on the basis of these two conceptual apparatuses, refer to the more specific studies of psychology and neuropsychology of rhythm. I will advance the assumption that the sense of rhythm, due to its values ​​of Gestalt organization, plays a fundamental role in narrative understanding, enhancing it; however, due to the dimensions of sensory-motor activation, sound rhythms, in particular, can induce physical involvement or entrainment and constitute in the film an auditory analogue of those embodied and enactive visual processes recognized by the most recent neurofilmological approaches.
