Summary
"Film and music belong together: classics like Fritz Lang's Metropolis (1927) and Mike Nichols's The Graduate (1967) are renowned tor their brilliant and evocative soundtracks. But what exactly is 'film music'? Does music act as an accompaniment to the film, or is film an illustration of the music - or are the two inseparable?" "In Film Music Peter Larsen traces the history of music in film and discusses central questions concerning film music's narrative, aesthetic and psychological functions. Probing the complex relationship between film and music, he looks in depth at film classics such as Howard Hawks's The Big Sleep (1946) and Alfred Hitchcock's North by Northwest (1959) as well as later international blockbusters and cult films such as Star Wars (1977) and Blade Runner (1982). In doing so, he offers a much-needed overview of how music functions in film and provides a fascinating, accessible introduction to the analysis of film music, as well as showing how this analysis opens up new and sometimes unexpected facets of a film. The book will be essential for students of film, music and cultural disciplines, as well as anyone with an interest in film and popular music."--BOOK JACKET
