Book description

The Routledge Companion to Screen Music and Sound provides a detailed and comprehensive overview of screen music and sound studies, addressing the ways in which music and sound interact with forms of narrative media such as television, videogames, and film. The inclusive framework of "screen music and sound" allows readers to explore the intersections and connections between various types of media and music and sound, reflecting the current state of scholarship and the future of the field.

A diverse range of international scholars have contributed an impressive set of forty-six chapters that move from foundational knowledge to cutting edge topics that highlight new key areas. The companion is thematically organized into five cohesive areas of study:

  • Issues in the Study of Screen Music and Sound?discusses the essential topics of the discipline
  • Historical Approaches?examines periods of historical change or transition
  • Production and Process?focuses on issues of collaboration, institutional politics, and the impact of technology and industrial practices
  • Cultural and Aesthetic Perspectives?contextualizes an aesthetic approach within a wider framework of cultural knowledge
  • Analyses and Methodologies?explores potential methodologies for interrogating screen music and sound

Covering a wide range of topic areas drawn from musicology, sound studies, and media studies, The Routledge Companion to Screen Music and Sound provides researchers and students with an effective overview of music?s role in narrative media, as well as new methodological and aesthetic insights.
