Film music (originally posted 4-1-2009)

About fifteen yeras ago I was asked to consult on a project called the Union Catalog of Motion Picture Music. The project has not advanced, although the research it was invented to serve has done so nicely. I’m once again visiting with these folks at a symposium at USC concerning musicological film studies.

There seem to be two essential problems for this domain–the musicological study of film music. First, that sources are missing, lost, dispersed, or non-existent. The second is that the sources are not of a traditional sort. This is to say, there probably are no definitive full scores, and of what does exist, much is in private or industry hands or has been lost. So here are two pdf’s–the symposium program, and a pdf of my PowerPoint slides (with references added at the end).
