Music and Sound in 21st Century Film - MUSC3624

Year - 2019

Films in the 'classical' style are still being made, but increasing numbers of films veer from tradition, and often their communicativeness depends on innovative uses of music and sound. This upper-level seminar involves intense scrutiny of soundtracks of works by Philip Nolan, Martin Scorsese, Terrence Malick, and other twenty-first-century filmmakers.
