Gender and Modernism in Classic Hollywood Film Scores
Author: Peter Franklin
Publisher: OUP USA
Seeing Through Music levels the critical playing-field between film-music and so-called 'serious music', reflecting upon gender-related ideas about music and modernism as much as about film. It proposes a history of twentieth-century music that would include the scores of a number of the major Hollywood movies discussed here.
This book provides a comprehensive and lively introduction to the major trends in film scoring from the silent era to the present day, focussing not only on dominant Hollywood practices but also offering an international perspective by including case studies of the national cinemas of the UK, France, India, Italy, Japan and the early Soviet Union. The book balances wide-ranging overviews of film genres, modes of production and critical reception with detailed non-technical descriptions of the interaction between image track and soundtrack in representative individual films. In addition to the central focus on narrative cinema, separate sections are also devoted to music in documentary and animated films, film musicals and the uses of popular and classical music in the cinema. The author analyses the varying technological and aesthetic issues that have shaped the history of film music, and concludes with an account of the modern film composer's working practices.
This wide-ranging, stimulating, and entertaining anthology of writings about the experiences of composers working in the high-pressure environment of the US film industry from the silent era to the present day includes both vivid first-hand accounts from the composers themselves and a representative selection of contemporaneous criticism and commentary.
