I can't find a sample of it anywhere online. I like to read a page or two to see if I gel with the authors writing style before buying books. Hopefully they'll have a 'look inside' feature for that title soon. Sounds interesting though, thanks for the heads up.
EDIT: I found a sample here https://www.backwingstore.com/products/scoring-the-screen-the-secret-language-of-film-music
That's a shame . It's a great book . Very in depth lots of score examples with very detailed analysis . Fifteen chapters each dealing with a specific score . Including vertigo , Patton , the matrix , alice in wonderland , the untouchables ..... definitely a quality book
It's a great book and Andy's a really nice and incredibly knowledgeable guy. You really can't go wrong - it's got actual scores from some contemporary scores and some classics with really inducible analysis.
Thanks Ed for the heads up. Just ordered it. You always have the best book recommendations.
I also see these books on Amazon. Anyone read these?
John Williams's Film Music: Jaws, Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and the Return of the Classical Hollywood Music Style (Wisconsin Film Studies) Paperback – June 12, 2014
SCORE: A Film Music Documentary - The Interviews Paperback – May 9, 2017
Thanks for the recommendation
Yeah, I'd hold of on making a spontaneous purchase like this book. It is best to look for free samples to get an overall idea of what the author is trying to convey before putting down cash. Sometimes these things tend to be more dissappointing. It is always better to be cautious than to take risks.
Thank you, I just ordered it, it seems interesting.
Agreed, but did you notice my edit? I added a link with a sample chapter, and I like what I see
I'd like to buy it from someone else than Amazon.
Here you go Ned: https://www.backwingstore.com/products/scoring-the-screen-the-secret-language-of-film-music
honestly ...i have so many film music books.....and this is my current favourite . Buy it ....you won't be disappointed
Thanks for that. I ended up buying it here in Canada. Looking forward to reading it!
I dunno. $20 isn't exactly much of a risk relative to potential reward. It's a safe bet to say you can get 20$ of value from this book.
