MUS 2030: Music Appreciation Assignment #5: Music in Movies Remember, no late work accepted. Purpose In chapter 9 we consider the purpose and role of music in the movies we watch. This assignment will ask you to consider the music in a movie of your choice, and then apply concepts from Chapter 9. Movie Selection You may choose any feature-length (over 1 hour) film. You can watch it in the theatre or in your dorm room, but it might be easier if you can pause it to take notes. I strongly recommend watching the entire movie for the best understanding of this project. Content to include â— Opening paragraph: â—‹ Name the movie and the year of its release â—‹ Name the composer(s) of the music in the movie. The end-credits will provide this information in detail, or you can look online. â— Then: Choose 3-4 musical moments during the movie to discuss in detail. These may include the opening credits, the ending credits, a theme song, or any significant/important scene(s). Each musical moment should be its own paragraph and will include: â—‹ When does the music take place during the movie? Is it a theme that is used multiple times or in multiple moments? â—‹ Who is performing? Soloist/band/choir/orchestra? â—‹ What instruments are involved? Orchestra/band/electronic sounds? â—‹ Who is singing? Name them, or describe their voice. â—‹ Describe the music. This should be multiple sentences and include things such as tempo/rhythm, key, dynamics, texture, mood it creates, etc. This is where you will use the new Italian musical terms we discussed in Chapter 8. â—‹ How does the music affect this moment in the movie? Does it change the mood? Set the scene? Warn of what is coming? Create suspense? Heighten the emotions? Etcâ€¦. â— Your final paragraph should be a conclusion. After watching the whole movie, what have you realized about the music and its role/function/purpose in the movie?
