External logic (of the audiovisual flow)

Soundtrack that does not follow the narrative and does not tend to fluctuate organically considering the latest; discontinued sound editing and mixing


  • Does not enable the spectator to appreciate the audiovisual content as a whole
  • The Offscreen sounds will remain unexpected even if the narrative context is known by the audience

Related induced effect: Sound reference
Opposite effect: Internal logic

(Chion, 1994)
