This series of six classes will feature examples that demonstrate styles heard in composers such as Bernard Herrmann, John Williams, Thomas Newman, and Max Richter.
The course will explore a range of theoretical concepts of modern composition and the various ways they are used in film and media composition.
Topics covered include intervals and chords, pitch in tonal and nontonal music, pantriadicism, Neo-Riemannian theory, chromatic and modal composition, minimalism, and aleatoric composition.
These free classes are being offered exclusively to AFM Local 47 members in good standing. Registration deadline: August 2, 2023.
