Review

'Refreshing in dealing with films of the 1980s and 1990s. It is also relatively rare to find film music books that seriously explore scores that rely to a large extent on popular music tracks. Hearing Film is a useful volume.' - Senses of Cinema

'No longer an esoteric domain limited to a few specialists, the world of film sound tracks has finally come into its own, thanks to books like Anahid Kassabian's Hearing Film: Tracking Identifications in Contemporary Hollywood Film Music. Turning her attention from the (traditional, male, European) realm of classical Hollywood composers to the (contemporary, female, American) sphere of music supervisors and compiled scores, Kassabian brilliantly shows how contemporary film music anchors a gendered identification process. Hearing Film is not just first-rate scholarship, it's exciting reading!' - Rick Altman, University of Iowa Professor of Cinema and Comparative Literature
