Abstract:

Introduction -- A.R. Rahman interview -- The 'alternate space' of A.R. Rahman's film music -- Zbigniew Preisner interview -- Music by Zbigniew Preisner? Fictional composers and compositions in the Kieślowski collaborations -- Carter Burwell interview -- Burwell and space: inner, outer, environmental and acoustical -- Rachel Portman interview -- Eero Tarasti and the narratological construction of Rachel Portman's Emma -- Dario Marianelli interview -- Solo instruments and internal focalization in Dario Marianelli's Pride & prejudice and Atonement -- Mychael Danna interview -- Mychael Danna: music as metaphor -- John Williams and contemporary film music -- Musical syntax in John Williams's film music themes

The purpose of this book, through its very creation, is to strengthen the dialogue between practitioner and theorist. To that end, a film academic, a composer, and a composer/musicologist have collaborated as editors on this book, which is in turn comprised of interviews with composers alongside complementary chapters that focus on a particular feature of the composer's approach or style, written by a musicologist or film academic who specializes in that particular element of the composer's output. In the interview portions of this book, eight major film composers discuss their work from the early 1980s to the present day. The focus is on the practical considerations of film composition, the relationship each composer has with the moving image, technical considerations, personal motivations in composing, the relationships composers have with their directors, and their own creative processes. Contemporary Film Music also explores the contemporary influence of electronic music, issues surrounding the mixing of soundtracks, music theory, and the evolution of composers' musical voices
