As an overview film music history, this course aims to explore the relationship between image and music in film. We will study the interactions between music, sound effects, and dialogue. In addition, students will gain awareness of various music genres, from Romantic to Jazz – and how composers used these genres in their film scores.  Although the course will focus primarily on films made in the United States, we will also study important film scores from Europe and Asia. The course will be a combination of lecture, film screenings, and discussion.
