About this course:

Since the days of silent film, music has accompanied moving pictures in theaters. Whether it be a single piano or organ, band or orchestra playing on cue, music synchronized to film has been an integral part of the movie experience. With the advent of ‘talkies’ and release of The Jazz Singer in 1927, a soundtrack could combine synchronous dialogue and singing with a musical score – and there was no turning back. Pianos and bands of the silent era have been replaced by film scores featuring every conceivable type of music (symphony orchestras; esoteric; indigenous; all kinds of electronic sounds and pop music). In this course, we explore the art and history of film scoring, movie musicals, animated films, composers and their fabulous film scores, as well as musical influences of classical, jazz, and popular music.
