Editorial Reviews

Review


"an engaging style and rich insights into films and their music ... Lehman's musical, dramaturgical, and psychological insights will lead to more engaged film listening and viewing." -- S. C. Pelkey, CHOICE


"presenting fascinating insights into the creative processes of game programmers and composers, as they worked to come up with new ideas for game consoles and music ... Recommended." -- K. George, CHOICE


"Hollywood Harmony brings analysis of film music fully into the present. Sophisticated theoretical modeling of associations and effects in the currently prevalent triadic style of underscore practice combines with close readings that not only offer fresh insights but also an over-the-composer's-shoulder immediacy."--David Neumeyer, Professor Emeritus of Music, The University of Texas at Austin and co-author of Hearing the Movies


"Lehman does more than illuminate an intriguing and analytically neglected repertoire; his study demonstrates how well suited the tools and technologies of neo-Riemannian theory are to reveal the affective devices of film music."--Ed Gollin, Professor of Music, Williams College
