    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 119.95

    The Speculum musicae of the early fourteenth century, with nearly half a million words, is by a long way the largest medieval treatise on music, and probably the most learned.

  • Meaning and Interpretation of Music in Cinemaby David P. Neumeyer

    Indiana University Press 2015; US$ 35.99

    By exploring the relationship between music and the moving image in film narrative, David Neumeyer shows that film music is not conceptually separate from sound or dialogue, but that all three are manipulated and continually interact in the larger acoustical world of the sound track. In a medium in which the image has traditionally trumped sound,... more...

  • The Music of Counterculture Cinemaby Mathew J. Bartkowiak; Yuya Kiuchi

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2015; US$ 40.00

    Films produced in late 1960s and early 1970s America--along with later films focusing on that period--continue to frame our understanding of the counterculture era. The popular and experimental music of the day is central to the counterculture narrative on film, from the utopian Monterey Pop (1968) to the disenchantment of Gimme Shelter (1970). But... more...

  • The Digital Evolution of Live Musicby Angela Jones; Rebecca Jane Bennett

    Elsevier Science 2015; US$ 78.95

    The concept of ?live? has changed as a consequence of mediated culture. Interaction may occur in real time, but not necessarily in shared physical spaces with others. The Digital Evolution of Live Music considers notions of live music in time and space as influenced by digital technology. This book presents the argument that live music is a special... more...

    edition text + kritik 2015; US$ 23.85

    Bereits in "Mean Streets" im Jahre 1973 gelang Martin Scorsese eine Szene, deren Kombination von Bild und Musik Kultstatus erlangte: Der Auftritt Robert De Niros zum Song "Jumpin' Jack Flash" der Rolling Stones sollte nur der erste Wurf eines Regisseurs sein, der es wie kaum ein anderer verstand, Musik und Film zur Einheit zu verschmelzen.... more...
