Dr. Matt Lawson is set to present his paper, “Film Music in Concert: Who is it for?” at the upcoming international conference in Graz, Austria, This conference examines the medial space situated in between the movies and the concert hall that was shaped by various agents working in both branches – not least by the adaptation of film music for the concert hall and vice versa. Matt’s paper will delve into the relationship between film music, classical music, popular music, and notions of superiority/inferiority/elitism in live music performance.
