Music, Sound and Moving Image - MMCS303

Moving images, in whatever form we consume them, are nothing without the soundtracks that underpin them and the soundscapes that surround them. This unit allows students to explore, analyse and create screen soundtracks building on theories of film and television studies, popular music studies, interactivity and gaming, genre, cultural history, audience engagement, narrative and character development. Fans, musicians, screen makers and anyone interested in exploring multimedia communication would benefit from this exploration into the unique interactions between music, sound and the moving image, as we break down the effectiveness of visual and sonic storytelling in a variety of contexts. Music, Sound and the Moving Image explores histories of screen and sound technologies and their interactions, but also uses these as a way to track and predict how future developments might play and sound out.
