Walter Murch's "Womb Tone" & "Dense Clarity - Clear Density"

I saw this on Coudal and thought it looked familiar--I'm as much of a Murch groupie as anyone, really--then I realized I'd posted about it last year on Daddy Types. [You know how it goes, come for the womb mentions, stay for the editing tips.]

Anyway, Walter Murch did an online companion piece to his lecture, "Dense Clarity - Clear Density," complete with sound and video clips, for There's also an essay called "Womb Tone," in which he talks about the in utero development of hearing and the shocking discovery a newborn baby makes upon leaving the womb: silence.

Always fascinating, that guy Murch.

The Transom Review: Walter Murch []

Since 2001 here at, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting that time.
