Sound but no Space...?
Despite the bias of critical thinking, analysis and certainly production focus on the visual elements of cinema over the aural there is none who would deny the sheer power of a soundtrack, in all its forms, to make or break a movie. Ted Pigeon over at 'The Cinematic Art' offers up a two part mini (part 1and part 2) essay on cinema sound with a focus on music that provides much food for thought.
However Teds argument also centres on a narraowness of sound perception attached to emmotional responses and signal flagging to the audience non-diegetically the drama of a scene.
