Review

"What distinguishes this groundbreaking work is the thorouhness with which Brown develops his philosophical and theoretical framework to explain the effectiveness and theoretical framework to explain the effectiveness of music in film."--"Choice --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Inside Flap

"Brown brings music theory to bear upon film theory, and the result is startling. . . . An extremely important work."--William Van Wert, Temple University

"Royal S. Brown has contributed a major resource on film music. Overtones and Undertones is an outstanding in-depth exploration of the relationship between music and motion picture."--Fred Karlin, composer

"Royal Brown's book on film music, Overtones and Undertones, is a remarkable document: an enormous amount of information assembled and made sense of by a fine intellect. Prof. Brown demonstrates that it is indeed possible for an academic--and a professor of Romance Languages at that--to deal intelligently with our esoteric art."--David Raksin, composer --This text refers to the paperback edition.
