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

    Indiana University Press 2015; Not Available

    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...

  • Relocating Popular Musicby Ewa Mazierska; Georgina Gregory

    Palgrave Macmillan 2015; US$ 95.00

    Relocating Popular Music uses the lens of colonialism and tourism to analyse types of music movements, such as transporting music from one place or historical period to another, hybridising it with a different style and furnishing it with new meaning. It discusses music in relation to music video, film, graphic arts, fashion and architecture. more...
