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’.
The Music and Film lectures and workshops are being organized by Andrew Lovett (Music) and Michael Smith (Philosophy, Committee for Film Studies).
