When Music Takes over in Film

This is my most recent major publication. It is an Open Access publication. Apart from the introduction co-authored with Austrian colleagues Anna Windisch and Claus Tieber, my chapter is ‘The acoustic wound: reflections on the crystal-song in five American films’. Read it here.

My next publication will be an article on the music in the TV series Engrenages (known as Spiral in the UK) for French Screen Studies.
