06 Hitchcock: The Music of Suspense, Obsession, & Murder - Part I

In a new episode of Kinotes, we explore the music of the “Master of Suspense”, Alfred Hitchcock, in part one of a two-part series entitled “Hitchcock: The Music of Suspense, Obsession, & Murder". There’s been so much discussion about Hitchcock’s use of visuals in the movies, but less so his soundtracks. In this first part, we’ll talk about Hitchcock’s use of music before his collaboration with Bernard Herrmann (with one exception), beginning with his first sound film BLACKMAIL and including films like THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, REBECCA, SUSPICION, SHADOW OF A DOUBT, SPELLBOUND, NOTORIOUS, ROPE, STRANGERS ON A TRAIN, REAR WINDOW, and many others. We’ll talk about his early sound and music innovations, his constant return to the waltz as a musical form, his technique of threading a song throughout a story, and his collaboration with a variety of accomplished composers including Franz Waxman, Dimitri Tiomkin, and Miklos Rozsa.

06 Hitchcock: The Music of Suspense, Obsession, & Murder - Part I

05 The Conversation / Blow Up / Blow Out: A Film Triptych

After a hiatus, we're back with an episode about my favorite film of all-time: Francis Ford Coppola's 1974 paranoid thriller, THE CONVERSATION. THE CONVERSATION has a special relationship with two other films: Antonioni's BLOW UP, which preceded and inspired it, and Brian De Palma's BLOW OUT, which is influenced by both movies. This episode explores the interconnection between the three through their music, sound design, and especially their thematic interests which include reality, perception, truth, and privacy. Naturally SPOILERS for the three movies, which do have some surprising twists and turns. I'm also including a spoiler warning for Hitchcock's VERTIGO as that film's plot has a special relationship to BLOW OUT. Show Notes: 0:00:00 - Introduction 0:03:00 - Blow Up Intro 0:04:15 - Herbie Hancock / Music as Setting & Counterpoint 0:08:28 - The Blow Ups: Narrativized Reality 0:11:58 - Persona Music: Bullitt, Pelham, Dirty Harry 0:13:30 - The Conversation Intro 0:16:00 - Harry C...

05 The Conversation / Blow Up / Blow Out: A Film Triptych

04 Blade Runner Films: Noir & Electronic Scores

In this episode, we’ll explore the music in BLADE RUNNER and in BLADE RUNNER 2049 through films noir as well as electronic movie music. We’ll talk sound design much more than usual as its so tightly integrated into the soundscapes of these films. Also related is a discussion on some of the social issues inherent in the music of the BLADE RUNNERs and noir, specifically race and gender politics. *SPOILERS* for most of the major plot points in BLADE RUNNER and BLADE RUNNER 2049. Show Notes: 0:00:00 - Introduction 0:01:22 - Blade Runner as Hybrid Genre Sci-fi Noir 0:04:30 - Film Noir Music: Intro / Classic Noir 0:09:22 - Jazz in Film: Race & Gender / The Crooner & Chanteuse 0:17:56 - Blade Runner: Memory & Nostalgia 0:20:00 - Noir: Trope of the Jazzy Solo Instrument 0:25:50 - Blade Runner / Chariots of Fire: Expressive & Emotional Electronics 0:28:29 - Electronic Film Music: Alien Sounds / Theremin 0:32:16 - Electronic Film Music: Forbidden Planet / Blurring of Music & Sound Design 0:...
