The School of Music will host a Conference on Music for Audio-Visual Media on 4-6 September 2014 to mark the end of year 1 of the Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded Trevor Jones Film-Music project. The conference will run in parallel with the Royal Musical Association’s 50th Annual Conference, and delegates will be free to move back and forth between the two events as desired.
The conference keynote lecture will be given by Professor Claudia Gorbman, who will talk about ‘heardness’ in film music. A keynote interview is planned with film and television composer Trevor Jones, whose career and output is the focus of the AHRC-funded project this conference is part of, subject to availability.
The event will provide scholars at all levels with an interest in music for moving images, with opportunities to discuss the most recent research and understanding in a range under the broad heading of music for audio-visual media, and features papers on a range of screen-music topics and approaches.
