Edgar Iacolenna takes you on a discovery of the profession of production sound mixer.
What is this book?
It represents the 'journey', in a figurative sense, that he wanted to undertake in order to discover the various ways of understanding this profession; the various ways of approaching the profession of production sound mixer and, therefore, the recording of sound on set.
He had the opportunity to interview seven top international sound engineers, chosen by him and ask them twelve questions.
