Review of James Buhler, Caryl Flinn, and David Neumeyer, eds. 2000. Music and Cinema. Middletown: Wesleyan University Press
The publication of Music and Cinema reflects the growing interest among musicologists in studying intersections of music and film, i.e., the soundtrack with its simultaneous images. Scholarship concerning music and film, which enjoyed its most vigorous growth spurt from the mid-1980s into the mid-1990s, seems to be largely motivated by three interlocking concerns: establishing the soundtrack as an indispensable component in film analysis, a field in which visual elements have always been favored; describing, analyzing, and categorizing the ways in which music bears upon understandings of film; and championing the composers of original scores who, until the appearance of this kind of literature, have not received due recognition for their achievements.
