I was guided in the library by one of the sound technicians who had worked on the movie, very kindly and carefully explained to me, basically, that it was an unfinished reel that was going to go into a final reel. So we had about a week to complete the sound. During that time, I was given a lot of guidance in the library and the stunt guys and the make-up artists would come in and throw ideas at me and we would try and work out problems that came up.

It all has that integrity. This film’s sound is like looking at a painting by way of audio. You don’t have to know what the painting is or what it’s supposed to be, this film’s sound is all of that.
The finite difference approximation is applied to estimate the moisture-dependent diffusion coefficient by utilizing test data of isothermal moisture desorption in northern red oak (Quercus rubra). The test data contain moisture distributions at discrete locations across the thickness of specimens, which coincides with the radial direction of northern red oak, and at... d2c66b5586
