2757 - Music in the Movies -- Modern Masters of the Film Score, 1960-2019
In the 1960s, filmmakers began to go beyond the old-style symphonic "background" scores of earlier movies, encouraging composers to adopt new idioms -- jazz, rock, electronic, and other modernistic styles of music, as well as new instruments and ensembles -- for their productions. This course will survey some of leading practitioners of film scoring who emerged in the late 20th century, including Jerry Goldsmith, John Williams, Ennio Morricone, Maurice Jarre, James Horner, Hans Zimmer, and others. Short lectures and film showings, followed by discussions, will focus on the role of the score in the film, and generally on the great variety of movie music over the past half-century.
