Hearing Film: Tracking Identifications in Contemporary Hollywood Film Music

The argument often made about film music and film sound books is that they are scarce when compared with books on the visual image. While this may have been true ten or so years ago, today there is a reasonable selection to choose from, if one is satisfied with frequent analyses of Hollywood classical films in the main. While Anahid Kassabian also largely draws on Hollywood films for her case studies, her Hearing Film book is refreshing in dealing with films of the s and s. It is also relatively rare to find film music books that seriously explore scores that rely to a large extent on popular music tracks. As such, Hearing Film is a useful addition for a burgeoning area of teaching and research.

Anahid Kassabian. Music is central to any film, creating a tone for the movie that is just as vital as the visual and narrative components. In recent years, racial and gender diversity in film has exploded, and the making of musical scores has changed drastically. Hearing Film offers the first critical examination of music in the films of the s and s and looks at the burgeoning role of compiled scores in the shaping of a film. And finally, in "Opening Scores," she considers how films such as Dangerous Minds, The Substitute, Mississippi Masala and Corrina, Corrina bring together several different entry points of identification through their scores. Kassabian ensures that modern film criticism has a new chapter written through this book. Her important and long-overdue analysis is not to be ignored.
