Two talks on consecutive Saturdays, 25 November and 2 December, designed to be taken together.
These talks will focus on music in film and audiovisuals – as opposed to film music – which means they’re not only about original, composed scores, but also any kind of music present in a production. Through the two talks, we’ll explore the many forms of music found in film (original music from popular or academic composers, pre-existing music from a variety of genres, etc.), the variety of functions music performs, and how music interacts with the editing, establishing an interesting syntax between image and sound. And we’ll explain strategies for creating these structures through an analysis of the connections between music and edited images.
As in my previous talks, the concepts are supported through detailed analyses of excerpts from classic films:
Over the two days our aim is to create an awareness of the multiple roles music plays in film.
4 hours including a break and Q&A.
Each ticket includes free access to a recording of the event for 6 months.
