Focuses on the musical styles, traditions, and social circumstances that led to a distinctive form of American popular music in the 1950's and '60's. In addition to developing critical listening skills to discern subtle distinctions among such styles and sub-styles as blues, folk, jazz, and country, the course also considers the diverse social trends that helped drive changes and developments in the various styles and genres covered.

Credits: 4.0

Through selected readings, attentive listening, viewing, and discussion of a variety of films and multi-media productions, students develop a common vocabulary for analyzing music accompanying moving images. Students develop an understanding of the western and non-western musical conventions that work, often at a subconscious level, in conjunction with images to shape and cue audience responses to, and interaction with, visual cues. Media includes canonic Hollywood films, independent and foreign cinema, with explorations of non-Western films, video game scoring, television, and animation. This course does not fulfill a music major program requirement nor does it satisfy the Fine and Performing Arts Discovery requirement for any music major program.

Additional Course Details: 

What does film/television/game music do? How does a director work with a composer? What kinds of musics are used in film/television/game  soundtracks, and how does music interact with the visual elements to make a film scene more memorable, whether or not the viewer is fully conscious of the musical accompaniment?  Can the type of music in a scene change how the viewer responds to it? What are some of the ways that directors, film composers, and music supervisors collaborate?

An introductory course for students from all majors except for music, this class spends the first segment of the class covering basic concepts that provide the vocabulary and foundation for students to begin to describe and discuss different aspects of film music and film and the ways composers work with musical conventions —whether reinforcing older conventions or inventing new ones—to convey non-verbal, and often subconscious information to a viewing audience.  For the majority of the course we study a range of films—some classic works that are part of the American film canon and noteworthy for both film and narrative techniques and music (The Searchers , Man with the Golden Arm, Vertigo, Breakfast at Tiffany's, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Do the Right Thing) —along with some more recent films—Grand Budapest Hotel, La La Land, Get Out, Black Panther, Selma, Interstellar, Dunkirk—and a small taste of Bollywood film.

(Below is a short segment from an interview with film composer Brian Tyler in which he discusses what he does.)

Television series & film composer, Ramin Djawadi discusses his work for the Game of Thrones series.

While the majority of the course focuses on film soundtracks, concepts will be equally applicable and relevant to television and game soundtracks, and we will explore game soundtracks broadly in the last week of the semester.

Note: The attached syllabus is from Fall 2021.  This syllabus has had some significant changes that have reduced the required work / assignments section from previous years (F 2014–SP 2019). I also may make some content changes over the summer, but the basic structure will be quite similar.

This course surveys the rich musical, cultural, and economic history of country music in the United States. Since its inception, country music has embodied a tension between tradition and progress. Country music thereby reflects a basic feature of the American story, valorizing our history while valuing social and technological development. Throughout the course, we consider this tension as it affects the musical content and cultural meaning of country music.
