Film Music | Film Scores
Here you find informations about "Emotion and Film Scores" and an article about Cult Films by Cole Gagne.
A film score is a broad term referring to the music in a film, which is generally categorically separated from songs used within a film. The term soundtrack is often confused with film score, though a soundtrack may also include songs featured in the film as well as previously released music by other artists, while the score does not. A score is written specifically to accompany a film, by the original film's composer(s).
Each individual piece of music, within a film's score, is called a cue and is typically a composition for instruments (eg. orchestra) and/or non-individually featured voices. Since the 1950s, a growing number of scores are electronic or a hybrid of orchestral and electronic instruments. Since the invention of digital technology and audio sampling, many low budget films have been able to rely on digital samples to imitate the sound of real live instruments. [ Wikipedia ]

Music and the Moving Image IX
Conference at NYU Steinhardt, May 30, 2014 – June 1, 2014
CALL FOR PAPERS
The annual conference, Music and the Moving Image, encourages submissions from scholars and practitioners that explore the relationship between music, sound, and the entire universe of moving images (film, television, video games, iPod, computer, and interactive performances) through paper presentations.
This year's conference will include a keynote speech by the film orchestrator Patrick Russ (King Kong, Far From Heaven) and we invite abstracts that focus on the role and function of orchestration. The Program Committee includes Patrick Russ, Elisabeth Weis (Film Sound: Theory and Practice, The Silent Scream: Alfred Hitchcock's Sound Track), Philip Carli (Synergy in America's Early Talking Machine Industry and original orchestral scores for Captain Salvation [1925; Turner, 2005], Stella Maris [1918; Milestone, 1998]), and coeditors of Music and the Moving Image, Gillian B. Anderson (Haexan; Pandora's Box; Composing for the Cinema, Music for Silent Film 1892-1929: A Guide); and NYU faculty, Ron Sadoff (The Moon and the Son: An Imagined Conversation; Chuck Jones: Memories of Childhood). The conference will run a few days before the NYU/ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop in Memory of Buddy Baker (June 4 – 13, 2014).
