Pick for 7/28/11 – Christian Marclay’s “The Clock” – 24-Hour Screening

Through both my approach to the visual and the sound editing, I wanted to create a sense of false continuity. I wanted the sound to bring the imagery into the same space. It’s not necessarily about music. It’s about sound quality, a certain resonance, and that’s very hard to equalize when you’re cutting from a contemporary film with big surround sound and bass to a black-and-white film that has a tinny, optical soundtrack without any bass or treble. The sound is a very important part of THE CLOCK and I spent a lot of time trying to achieve that fluidity.
