Description: "From silent cinema to the modern-day Hollywood blockbuster, this volume provides a comprehensive and engaging overview of the major trends in the history of film music, and is the first study of film scoring to present a genuinely international perspective on the subject. The book: includes case studies of the national cinemas of the USA, UK, France, India, Italy, Japan and the early Soviet Union; contains 'behind the scenes' accounts of production and critical reception; provides detailed non-technical analyses of the interaction between image track and soundtrack in a wide range of film genres, styles and historical periods; covers technological developments and aesthetic issues; and is ideal for both students and film enthusiasts."--BOOK JACKET.
