Dear all, I have a student who is interested in 'Emotion, music and film'. He would like to investigate the way music may change the interpretation of a scene/film sequence. For example, how music (and/or sound) may change the way a children's fight is perceived - making it appear sinister, threateningly violent, play fighting, surreal, etc.... My request is:- can anyone help with references, not journal articles of traditionally quantitative experiments, but rather of books and chapters covering what film makers know and what they do, and also more of a cultural, semiotic nature. Is there a semitiotics of music?? Also , anyone know of good Web pages on this area? Many thanks and Best wishes, Kevin L.
