Abstract (Summary)

This paper investigates the interactions between film and music. Its focus is a project in which I created two short films: one, an original story with music added, and another based on an original composition.

In order to see the ways in which film and music affect each other, a project has been generated and performed live for a M.M. recital. For the project, we implemented two processes that are the reverse of each other. This project is a two-movement piece of music for solo horn and film. We approached the first movement, Three Scenes at a Park Bench, in the tradition of most modern day films: I shot the movie first and then Mr. Ninmer composed a score to follow the story. We created the second movement, Paperboy, in the opposite manner: Ninmer composed original music first and then I created a film to follow this composition. Upon completion of the project, I performed it and then examined any difficulties that may have transpired during the process.
