Summary: "In a major book for the field, Michel Chion considers film music with his trademark panache. Discussing the historical considerations of film music and the theoretical implications of the crossover between the mediums of music and film, Chion expands on the concepts he has introduced and applies them exclusively to film music. From Sunrise to The Jazz Singer to Birdman to Felicit�e, The Music of Cinema will be both a strong entry point for general readers interested in learning more about film music, a solid textbook in the field, as well as an evergreen resource for film scholars. The first section of the book examines music in films from the historical perspective, exploring how technical advances are related to aesthetic considerations. Next, a more theoretical section addresses the use of music in film as both element and medium, world and subject, metaphor and model"--
