Hollywood Harmony explores the inner workings of film music. Author Frank Lehman brings together tools from music theory, musicology, and music psychology in this first ever book-length analytical study of a culturally central repertoire. With a focus on musical expressivity, transformation, and color, this book offers a new and sophisticated perspective on some of the most familiar seeming-and surprisingly complex-music in contemporary society.
