What has been described as second generation film musicology is both building on, and challenging the orthodoxies of, the pioneering work of scholars who published in the final two decades of the twentieth century. CineMusic? Constructing the Film Score is representative of this new scholarship, approaching the construction of the film score from a number of perspectives, from the primarily practical to the more abstract and theoretical. The films that form the basis of these reflections are similarly diverse, from art-house to mainstream, classical to postmodern. This volume includes essays by established and upcoming scholars and practitioners as well as interviews with two of the UK's most influential film composers-Trevor Jones (Mississippi Burning, Brassed Off!, Notting Hill, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) and Michael Nyman (The Draughtsman's Contract, The Piano, Gattaca, The Libertine). An afterward by Anahid Kassabian proposes a number of areas that are ripe for further exploration.
