Musicology Lecture: The Three Architectures of Film Music - Mark Slobin (Wesleyan University)

The talk outlines three architectural ways of thinking about film music: music supports the narrative architecture of a movie in the way that columns, archways, and doorways buttress the structure of buildings; music provides its own sonic architecture, constructing pathways for the ear through the unfolding of the film, and music also works with or against the physical architecture of sets and settings. The core examples come from the classic era of Hollywood, with excursions to other cinema systems for comparative purposes.
