Music, Sound, and the Moving Image is the first international scholarly journal devoted to the study of the interaction between music and sound in moving image media, including film, television, music video, advertising, computer games, mixed-media installation, digital art, live cinema, et alia.
The journal is truly interdisciplinary, inviting contributions across a range of critical methodologies, including musicology and music analysis, film studies, popular music studies, cultural theory, aesthetics, semiotics, sociology, marketing, sound studies, and music psychology.
The journal also provides an important focus for the similarly diverse and expanding community of media music scholars. The journal is published twice a year, and its first issues were open, embracing this diversity of topics and approaches. Themed issues, under a guest editor, now alternate with open issues, encouraging writers to explore areas under-represented in current literature.
The editors welcome contributions offering the broadest interpretation of the journal’s title, not only seeking to build upon the existing scholarship on film music and film sound, but also to challenge its theoretical assumptions, and to extend its boundaries to include the full variety of moving image media and traditions.
Papers appearing in this journal are abstracted or indexed in:
- Emerging Sources Citation Index
- Sustainability and Natural Resource Management Database
- The Music Index Online
- International Index to Film Periodicals
