Reviews

"This book is a gripping and wide-ranging study of the issues that arise when a voice inhabits another body and, by doing so, creates a new audio-visual collage. Its insights will come as a revelation to anyone who thinks lipsynching is simply a matter of ensuring that your lips move at the same time as the recorded voice." --Derek B. Scott, Professor of Critical Musicology, University of Leeds, UK, and editor of The Ashgate Research Companion to Popular Musicology (2009)

"Spanning from the Kinetograph to viral videos, this is a rich study that situates lipsynching - as a creative, 'readerly' form of listening - in a long history of audio-visual media, culminating in what Snell calls a 'soundtracked life'. It will be a valuable book for sound and media scholars, and for anyone interested in how notions of the cinematic extend into today's vernacular musical practices." --Carlo Cenciarelli, Lecturer in Music, Cardiff University, UK, and editor of The Oxford Handbook of Cinematic Listening (forthcoming)
