“Adding sound to movies would be like putting lipstick on the Venus de Milo.” –Mary Pickford
“If it’s a good movie, the sound could go off and the audience would still have a perfectly clear idea of what was going on.” ―Alfred Hitchcock “Everywhere you go, there’s a soundtrack. You can’t really quite hear it. It’s just a little out of the range of hearing.” ―Linda Ronstadt “See the music, hear the dance.” ―George Balanchine “Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard are sweeter.” ―John Keats “The world is full of poetry. The air is living with its spirit; and the waves dance to the music of its melodies, and sparkle in its brightness.” ―James Gates Percival “The temple bell stops but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers.” ―Matsuo Basho “When you see a silent movie, you understand everything that’s going on from the images because the images are so strong.” ―Monica Bellucci
People with an ear for colors, an eye for music and a taste for art, such as the creator of the Zing! series shown on this page and in this movie (the movie has a soundtrack), see art in the audio spectrum and hear it in the color spectrum. So may you. Just watch it with your sound on, and listen to it with the sound off. Either way, you’ll taste the Zing!
