The Film and Multimedia Interest Group strives to create a scholarly space to stimulate and disseminate research on music (broadly understood to include sound) within film, games, and multimedia, employing well-established music analytical methodologies, as well as newly developed analytical frameworks. By extension, this group will seek to facilitate dialogue and collaboration with other interest groups within the Society for Music Theory and researchers working in cognition, musicology, and allied fields.

      Dear colleagues,

      We are excited to invite all of you to our upcoming Film and Multimedia Interest Group meeting at the SMT Annual Meeting in Denver this November! The meeting is scheduled for 7:30 PM on Friday, November 10. For this year’s meetup, we will be hosting a session of Work-in-Progress Lightning Talks.

      The presenters will offer 10-minute papers on ongoing research projects about music in film and multimedia. After all presentations are complete, we will devote about 30 minutes to workshopping the given talks so that the speakers may gather feedback from our members and other interested scholars. This session is meant to offer a safe, open, and inclusive space to provide and receive constructive feedback on works in progress. Full meeting schedule below.
