Listening In: World Science Festival Presents “The Art of the Score”

October 09, 2013 at 3:48 pm

In this week’s Listening In segment, we take you to “The Art of the Score: The Mind, Music, and Moving Images,” a co-presentation of World Science Festival and the New York Philharmonic.  Alec Baldwin, film directors Joel and Ethan Coen, film composer Carter Burwell and neuroscientist Aniruddh Patel explore the uniquely powerful role of music in shaping the narrative flow and the emotional impact of film. From Stanley Kubrick’s classic 2001: A Space Odyssey to the Coen Brothers’ “Miller’s Crossing” and “True Grit”, this program examines the creative process of scoring feature films and the neuro-scientific insights that reveal how such compositions profoundly shape the audience experience.
