The Star Wars Audio Compendium

This is the comprehensive book with a digital sound module that re-creates the iconic audio effects of the Star Wars series while revealing the secrets behind their invention. Organized with the thoroughness of a museum catalog, this treasure trove archives 256 sound effects and famous lines of dialog, along with a behind-the-scenes look at how they were created and recorded. Each entry in the book is coded with a three-digit numeral that, when keyed into the integrated sound module, plays the audio clip. The book chronicles all six Star Wars films, from the raspy breaths of Darth Vader (made from a scuba breathing regulator) to the whirr of General Grievous' ship, the Malevolence (a back massager on a spinning vinyl record). The sound module has a volume control and a headphone jack for discreet listening. With a foreword by Ben Burtt, the Oscar-winning sound designer who created most of the effects. 11" H x 11" W x 2" D. (4 lbs.)
