Sample text

In fact, José Carlos Avellar has characterized the chanchada as “sophisticated radio” because, especially early on, the actors were motionless and verbal explanations of what was going on were thought to be required at all points. Emphasizing the high continuity between chanchadas and the “teatro de revista” or Brazilian music hall, Dennison and Shaw speak of “a celluloid continuation” that poked fun at authorities and used many of the classic topics of teatro de revista and performing circus: the mockery of “outsiders” including foreigners and especially “dim-witted Portuguese immigrants” (11) and other stereotypes such as the “illiterate hick,” the “indolent civil servant,” the “wily mulata,” etc.

One of the formal elements that significantly contributes to the illusion of continuity in this sequence is the film sound: the tumbling body in the image is accompanied by labored sound effects that loop continuously despite the discontinuous trick shot. Listening more closely to the soundtrack, however, reveals the seams of this aural trick and forces us to consider the stutter not simply in the image track, but also in terms of the component elements of the soundtrack and the resultant sound–image relations.

The production of the diegesis relies on the spectators’ rerouting from apparatus to diegesis; however, the collision of sound effect as transcription and sound convention produces a fracturing moment. The comedic polysemic play of the comedian, capitalizing on animating the semiotic possibilities LUIS SANDRINI’S STUTTER 39 of the word, finds a counterpart in the soundtrack, capitalizing on the synchronic tension of narrative and discursive systems as well as indexical and symbolic signifying sound practices.
