Hearing the Dark: Music's Narrative Functions in Hollywood Film Noir

Date/Time

Sep 14, 2017
6:00 PM until 8:00 PM

Description

Hollywood film noir from the l940's and early l950's offers a dark reflection of the social anxiety lingering in America after WWII.  Much scholarship has attributed this developing style not only to the plots and characters, but also to innovations in cinematography and lighting.  Little research, however, has directly considered music's role in shaping this unique genre of films.  Dr. Kevin Burke of Florida Institute of Technology spotlights several musical deviations from conventional Hollywood practice.
