This is not just a book about film music. It is an account of an industry in flux, seen from the standpoint of the men and women who now create the soundtracks for a whole spectrum of new media types. The industry has changed, and this is the first account of how composers have adapted.
I really enjoyed this. It’s full of no-nonsense, practical advice, much of which is delivered in quotes from composers who do this work for real, every day.
Student Filmmakers: Borum’s book is highlighted in this feature that contains several endorsements from music professionals.
