Hearing Film by Anahid Kassabian
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Hearing Film offers the first critical examination of music in contemporary films, paying close attention to the role of newly composed scores versus compiled soundtracks and how they condition different kinds of identification process. Anahid Kassabian describes and analyzes the differing functions of compiled and composed scores in such films as Dangerous Liaisons, Bagdad Cafe, Dirty Dancing, Thelma and Louise, Lethal Weapon 2, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Dangerous Minds and Mississippi Masala . Drawing on issues in film, musicology, popular music studies, media studies, cultural studies, and feminist theory, this interdisciplinary study will influence all future analyses of film music and change the way filmgoers hear and perceive music in film.
