9780299133641: Settling the Score: Music and the Classical Hollywood Film (Wisconsin Studies in Film)

Beginning with the earliest experiments in musical accompaniment carried out in the Edison Laboratories, Kathryn Kalinak uses archival material to outline the history of American music and film. Focusing on the scores of several key composers of the sound era, including Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s Captain Blood, Max Steiner’s The Informer, Bernard Herrmann’s The Magnificent Ambersons, and David Raksin’s Laura, Kalinak concludes that classical scoring conventions were designed to ensure the dominance of narrative exposition. Her analyses of contemporary work such as John Williams’ The Empire Strikes Back and Basil Poledouris’ RoboCop demonstrate how the traditions of the classical era continue to influence scoring practices today.

About the Author:

Kathryn Kalinak is professor of English and film studies at Rhode Island College and has published many articles on film sound.

From Library Journal:

Kalinak (English and film studies, Rhode Island Coll.) offers an in-depth and academic study of film scoring. Music in film may seem incidental, but Kalinak shows its extreme importance as both "articulator of screen expression and initiator of spectator response." Who can forget the theme from Jaws , which turned a peaceful ocean scene into a threatening nightmare? After introductory chapters on music and theory, Kalinak places film scores in a historical context focusing on Erich Korngold's score for Captain Blood (1939). He then analyzes various film scores: Max Steiner's The Informer (1935), Bernard Herrmann's The Magnificent Ambersons (1942), David Raskin's Laura (1944), and finally John Williams's The Empire Strikes Back (1980). This major work on scoring goes a long way toward proving the importance of music in film. For serious film and/or music collections.

Descrizione libro University of Wisconsin Press, United States, 1992. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Settling the Score situates the classical Hollywwod film score and its practice in historical, theoretical and musical context. Kathryn Kalinak examines the conventions and strategies underpinning film scoring in Hollywood, investigating what has been considered the most influential and powerful relationship to have evolved between music and film, the classical Hollywood model. Beginning with the earliest experiments in musical accompaniment carried out in the Edison laboratories. Kalinak uses archival material to outline the history of music and film in America. Focusing on the scores of several key composers of the sound era, including Erich Wolfgang Korngold s Captain Blood , Max Steiner s The Informer , Bernard Herrmann s The Magnificent Ambersons , and David Raskin s Laura , Kalinak concludes that classical scoring conventions were designed to ensure the dominance of narrative exposition. Her analyses of contemporary work such as John Williams The Empire Strikes Back and Basil Poledouris Robocop demonstrate how the traditions of the classical era continue to influence scoring practices today.Underlying the author s historical investigation is an inquiry into the nature of film music itself. Exposing the visual bias in western culture in general and in film studies in particular. Kalinak argues that music is a fundamental part of the filmic exerience. She constructs a model for the perception of film that takes into account the shared power of image and sound in shaping response. Using contemporary theoy, Settling the Score makes the case that music should be an integral part of film analysis. Codice libro della libreria AAN9780299133641
