Mais, jusqu'où ira le monteur son ?

Abstract : During several years, the manufacturing of the soundtrack in the cinema was realized by the sound engineer and the mixer. Recently, a new job was created which took an increasing place in the organization and the cooperation between the actors. It is the sound editor. His work consists in building the soundtrack of the movie, in particular with sound materials such as the voices, the environment sounds and also with what we call the effects (in fact the noises). Associated with the integration of new technologies, with the evolution of the audio quality in the cinema, with the desires of new sound writings of the authors and the directors and in a concomitant way in an increasing demand of the public for a " new " soundtrack, the sound editor is fitted into the sound chain creation. From the very beginning, his arrival, quickly associated with the new postproduction tools, upset the organization of the work. It led to a reorganization of the tasks and to a partial separation of the work of the sound, in its relation with the image. The editor and the sound editor become two different actors. More recently, the sound editor begins, for economic and technical reasons, to assume tasks, which were previously devolved to the mixer. But how far will the sound editor go ?
