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.

      Hi, FMIGers. Aaron Donaldson is a communications lecturer at Cal Poly Humboldt, a big fan of music and movies (among many other things), and an avid podcaster ( I’ve been a guest on a couple of his episodes, and he’s been a lot of fun to collaborate with. No renumeration, but I’ve liked including my contributions to his work on the “public music theory” part of my CV.He just contacted me with an interest in bringing on an expert who could talk about Horner’s “danger motif” (you know: this Rachmaninoff redux) as he is hoping to “do a bit of a deep dive into what it might tell us about threat or villains.” I’m swamped, so I thought someone in the FMIG family might like to take this one, if you have the time and inclination. Aaron can be reached at; I’ve told him that someone might come calling.With well wishes, -Scott
