As part of the “Music and Film” series, sponsored by the Humanities Council’s Edward T. Cone ’39 *42 Fund, join John Butt (University of Glasgow) for this conversation about the ways Alfred Hitchcock used music as a way of conceiving of films, specifically in the relationships between ‘absolute music’ and ‘pure cinema’.
