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.

      William Ayers

      Hello again!

      This serves as a reminder that the AMS Music and Media Study Group and the SMT Film and Multimedia Interest Group will host a Virtual Movie Discussion Hangout for Friday, August 11, 2023, at 8:00 PM EDT.

      We are preparing to discuss the Director’s Cut of Close Encounters of the Third Kind (written and directed by Steven Spielberg, score by John Williams). Attendees can plan to watch the film in advance in preparation for a casual “happy hour” discussing their thoughts about the soundtrack.

      If you would like to attend this virtual hangout, please provide your name and email through the following link: We’ll send out Zoom meeting information the day before the event.
