Over the last decade popular cinema has
employed a variety of forms of music. These include traditional composed
screen music, pre-recorded music tracks, mixes of music and sound effects
and various combinations of these. In response to this, film music
scholars have developed new ways of understanding and analysing the role
of film music in relation to genre, narrative and creative roles and
inter-relations in film music scoring.
