This course offers students the opportunity to study the history of the relationship between music and film and to gain an understanding of the main historical developments surrounding the use of music in film. The opportunity to analyse various examples of film music, taken from the silent era through to the present day, allows students to enhance their understanding of the role that composers for film played in the use of music as part of the 'sound-track' of a film. There is a particular focus on exploring and investigating the development of music’s function in creating, or enhancing, 'meaning' in various genres of film, with specific reference to the most recent research in this area. The course offers a broad range of examples taken from films developed not only in the United States (Hollywood), but also from China, Japan, India, Europe, Britain, and Australia.
