Films achieve their effects with sound as well as images. An ideal textbook for introductory film music courses Hearing the Movies: Music and Sound in Film History (PDF) brings music into the context of sound, and sound into the context of the whole film.
The textbook explores film sound in 3 parts. Through accessible, engaging, sample analyses and exercises, Part 1 illustrates ways to analyze a soundtrack in relation to the image track. Part 2 focuses on the contributions of music to film form and style while offering a number of detailed analyses of different types of scenes; and Part 3 lays out a concise history of film sound and music, paying particular attention to the role of technological innovations in film exhibition and production.
