About the Author

Fred Karlin won an Oscar for Best Song for "For All We Know." an Emmy for his score for The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman,and numerous other industry awards. He is the author of Listening to Movies (1994). The late Rayburn Wright created the Jazz Studies and Contemporary Media Masters Program at the Eastman School of Music of the University ofRochester and erved as director and professor of the department from 1970 until his death in 1990.


This is a detailed, comprehensive textbook directed at composers and meant to be used in conjunction with videocassettes or films, VCRs with audio-dub capabilities, soundtrack albums, other books, periodicals and trade publications, and advice from experts, 77 of whom are quoted. A ``click book'' of over 200 pages, used to precisely calculate musical tempos in conjunction with film cues, is included. Highly technical exercises appear with blank staffs for notation, turning part of the book into a workbook. The psychological aspects of film music work are not neglected, however; chapters on creativity and on the interdependence of many people involved in making a film score give good advice. The practical aspects of getting a job in this sector of the music business are also covered. A specialized title for libraries serving composers and film makers.-- Bonnie Jo Dopp, District of Columbia P.L.

'A stupendous book that doesn't scant in offering details about the complex world of the music composition for movies ... It is obligatory reading for the composer that wants to enter the wonderful world of filmscoring.' -- Audiomidilab, Community of Music Technology
