THE SOUNDS OF MUSIC

OCT 9TH – NOV 13TH 

A Six-Week Evening Course on Music for Film

From silent film accompaniment to multi-selling soundtracks, film music has evolved to become an essential and dynamic component. Compositions from award-winners such as Ennio Morricone or John Williams are instantly identifiable, their soundtracks contributing to the visceral and emotional cinema experience.

This six-week course will look at examples of film music, from the experimental to big budget composition. The course will run on consecutive Tuesdays, commencing at 18.30 unless otherwise stated. Order of screenings may vary slightly.
