Genhør med dogme 95 [Dogme 95 reheard]

Assuming that the 10 Danish Dogma films can be considered genre films, the article analyses the use of sound and music in these films. The “Vow of Chastity” proposed by the Dogma directors specifies that sound and image must never be produced separately, and the article presents elements of productions practice as well as aesthetic considerations. Using examples from the finished films, it demonstrates how the artistic intention formulated in the set of rules was handled during production and how it influenced the finished films. The individual Dogma films were quite different from an auditory point of view, but among the auditory characteristics of the films were the auditory jump cut and the abolition of the traditional dichotomy between diegetic and non-diegetic music.
