Un nouvel univers sonore pour les Français. Les fonctions d’identification, de ritualisation et de remémoration des sons de la télévision

Abstract : The commercialization of television was a revolution as it introduced an audiovisual media into our homes. The most important aspect of television is that it broadcasts animated images, yet we should not forget it broadcasts sounds as well. Those sounds, what are they exactly ? Most of them origininate from the world, captured by micros and video cameras. Some other sounds are specialy created for television, to fulfil a specific purpose. We would like to examine the sounds heard during opening sequences, credits and jingles of French television programs, from late 1940s to late 1980s. We shall demonstrate these sounds aim at important goals, in this time when viewers get familiar with the new media that is television. Such sounds contribute to rythming and ritualizing programs, installing them into the habits of viewers who would learn to identify programs through sounds as well as images. This is a form of inter-media transfer, derived from radio to television to fulfill the same purposes. Also, these sounds would become part of popular culture, surviving long after the ending of the program they used to illustrate, and becoming a king of heritage, a part of the memory of television.
