    Question Film scoring book

    Hello,

    Does anybody know of a good book covering film scoring techniques? I am interested in the musical side only, not the business side of the activity as I only want to read it to fulfill my own curiosity.

    Thank you in advance for any recommendation,
    Pierre

    Pierre,
    There is a Composers Music Forum that has discussions on this topic. I am sorry I do not have the link. Maybe one of the other people around here can help post the link to Mike Kelly's Composers Music Forum or you could do a search.
    Hope this helps.

    On the Track: A Guide to Contemporary Film Scoring
    by Fred Karlin, R. Wright

    Payed a fortune for my hardcover copy many years ago..
    I think there is a cheaper paperback version out now.

    Hey, Pierre,

    I don't know what the availability is on their European sites, but Amazon.com in the states has it available shipping in 24 hours, $60(US).
