Book Analysing Musical Multimedia

Analysing Musical Multimedia
By:Nicholas Cook
Published on 1998 by Oxford University Press

Analysing Musical Multimedia is the first book to put forward a general theory of the manner in which different media - music, words, moving picture, and dance - work together to created multimedia. Though generally associated with contemporary developments, in particular music video and film, a general theory of musical multimedia also encompasses traditional genres such as song and opera. Critical writing in these areas, however, is genre-specific; this books seeks to establish principles, and a terminology for their description, that apply across the whole spectrum of musical multimedia. Beginning with a study of the way in which meaning is mediated in television commercials, Cook concludes with in-depth readings of Disney's Fantasia, Madonna's video Material Girl, and Armide (Godard's sequence from the collaborative film Aria). Analysing Musical Multimedia not only shows how approaches deriving from music theory can contribute to the understanding of multimedia, but alsoseeks to draw conclusions from the practice and further development of musical analysis.
