Over the last three decades film music studies has grown into a vibrant discipline informed by musicological, film and cultural studies. Although Hollywood practice constitutes the basis of contemporary film music theory, only by comparing the ideological prerequisites and methodologies of classical Hollywood scoring with alternative practices in European, American Independent and World cinema is it possible to fully grasp the vast potential of modes of employment, interactive relationships, meanings and effects created in the meeting of music with the moving image. Supported by examples from various types of practice, this seminar will address the main themes and debates of film music studies, the theoretical, cultural and practical issues surrounding this subject, with an emphasis on questions of aesthetics.
Please note that this seminar is open only to those students who have completed the 'Sound and the Moving Image' module
