Description

This multimedia presentation will examine the place and role of music in society through the realm of genre hybridity and film scoring. Through the merging of various genres in music because of migration, one can argue that the origins of sub-genres evolved from elements such as nationalism, and/or love for religion or Christian Rock or Taqwacore (love for religion or spiritual belief). Additionally, this presentation will discuss and support the idea that the migration of music into the film realm can be just as important as the film itself. Though the use of visuals and dialogue can be very effective, a good film score can tell a story as well. Finally, this paper contributes to interdisciplinary studies by blending together music composition, film, and the influence of culture in society, as well as establishing a healthy dialogue between the three.
