MUSC 3750 - Music in Film


3 cr. 3 hrs Day course offered in the Fall.

This course covers a variety of music produced for film, from the silent film era to the present day, in order to explore how music works, or fails to work, with visuals. Students will study the relation of music to visual aesthetics and dramatic action, and will learn to analyze compositional issues such as orchestration, instrumental timbre, use of leitmotivs, and theme development. Audio and visual materials, discussion, presentations, and projects are used to enhance the enjoyment, understanding, and experience of music used in film. No instrumental or musical ability is required for this course. ART
