Review Quotes
"Composer for acclaimed films, including 2006 Academy Award-winning 'The Moon and The Son: An Imagined Conversation.' This well-edited, laid out, and contextualized collection of essays provides a much needed resource on a topic whose rigorous examination has, until now, been limited toscholarly articles scattered amongst a variety of academic journals. Its appearance could not be more timely, given the steadily increasing interest in cross modal perception, and, specifically, perception of audio-visual composites... The book's contributors and editors represent a 'who's who' inthe area and their work provides rigorous substance to the ever-growing realization that the presence of an image changes what we 'hear' and the presence of a sound changes what we 'see.' A must-have resource for experts, students, and practitioners of the topic alike!" --Pantelis Vassilakis, Associate Professor and Chair, Audio Arts and Acoustics Department, Columbia College Chicago, USA
The Psychology of Music in Multimedia marks a critical turning point in re-envisioning the established methods for analyzing music and moving image within multimedia. Grounded in the burgeoning empirical research of leading scholars in psychology and music perception, scientific approaches are merged with analytical modalities of musicology, music technology, and film studies. Consequently, the synergy between these comprehensive, analytical approaches leads to more inclusive andcorroborative results. The authors provide an exemplary blueprint for critical inquiry, gearing the concerted efforts of diverse scholars toward interdisciplinary and broad-based analytical strategies. In essence, a collaborative approach for a collaborative medium.

Any serious media scholar will want this volume as part of their library." -- James C. Kaufman Professor of Psychology University of Connecticut, USA Founding Editor, Psychology of Popular Media Culture "The Psychology of Music in Multimedia presents a fascinating introduction to the many psychology-based approaches towards understanding our relationship to media. The authors tackle diverse areas relating to sound in TV, software, film and games to show the impact that sound and music has on multimedia, suggesting that sound is an overlooked and influential force for emotional and engaging experiences. By juxtaposing chapters from different areas of media and psychological research, the editors draw parallels between different media forms that will enlighten and delight the reader, as we find similarities and distinctions that help to elucidate the role that sound plays in our everyday lives. This book is sure to become essential reading to anyone working on media music." - Karen Collins, Canada Research Chair in Interactive Audio at the University of Waterloo, Canada

Bowker Data Service Summary
Since the birth of film-making, music has played a central role in conveying emotion, action, tension, and tragedy. This book explores the psychological processes involved in the integration of sound and image when engaging with film, television, video, interactive games, and computer interfaces.
Long Description
For most of the history of film-making, music has played an integral role serving many functions - such as conveying emotion, heightening tension, and influencing interpretation and inferences about events and characters. More recently, with the enormous growth of the gaming industry and the Internet, a new role for music has emerged. However, all of these applications of music depend on complex mental processes which are being identified through research on human participants inmultimedia contexts.The Psychology of Music in Multimedia is the first book dedicated to this fascinating topic.The Psychology of Music in Multimedia presents a wide range of scientific research on the psychological processes involved in the integration of sound and image when engaging with film, television, video, interactive games, and computer interfaces. Collectively, the rich chapters in in this edited volume represent a comprehensive treatment of the existing research on the multimedia experience, with the aim of disseminating the current knowledge base and inspiring future scholarship.The focus on empirical research and the strong psychological framework makes a unique and distinct contribution to the field. The international collection of contributors represents eight eight countries and a broad range of disciplines including psychology, musicology, neuroscience, media studies, film, andcommunications. Each chapter includes a comprehensive review of the topic and, where appropriate, identifies models that can be empirically tested.PartOne presents contrasting theoretical approaches from cognitive psychology, philosophy, semiotics, communications, musicology, and neuroscience. Part Two reviews research on the structural aspects of music and multimedia, while Part Three focuses on research examining the influence of music on perceived meaning in the multimedia experience. Finally Part Four explores empirical findings in a variety of real-world applications of music in multimedia including entertainment and educationalmedia for children, video and computer games, television and online advertising, auditory displays of information, and the impact of surround sound. The closing chpater identifies emerging themes and points to to the value of broadening the scope of research to multisensory, multidisciplinary, andcross-cultural cross-cultural perspectives to advance our understanding of the role of music in multimedia.This is a valuable book for those in the fields of music psychology and musicology, as well as film and media studies.
