Film and music belong together; classics like Fritz Lang’s "Metropolis" (1927) and Mike Nichols’ "The Graduate" (1967) are renowned for their brilliant soundtracks. But what exactly is "film music"? Does music act as an accompaniment to the "film", or is film an illustration of the music, or are the two inseparable?

In "Film Music" Peter Larsen traces the history of music in film and discusses central theoretical questions concerning its narrative and psychological functions. He looks in depth at classics such as Howard Hawks’ "The Big Sleep" (1946) and Alfred Hitchcock’s "North by Northwest" (1959), as well as later international blockbusters and cult films including "American Grafitti" (1973), "Star Wars" (1977) and "Blade Runner" (1982). These case studies explore the role of music in the history of film, and also show how other films can be discussed in relationship to their music.

"Film Music" offers a much-needed overview of how music functions in film and serves as a fascinating, accessible introduction to the analysis of film music. The book will serve as an important text for students of film, music and cultural disciplines, as well as the general reader with an interest in film and popular music.

Reviews

"...contains some salient points about the function of film music and its development, from the silent period (when films had live accompaniment) through to the present. It will certainly be a must for Bernard Herrmann fans, given its thorough examination of his score for Hitchcock's North by Northwest. On this count alone the book is worth its while" – Film Review
