4 ECTS / Semestral / English, Portuguese

The Film Scoring curricular unit intends to analyse how Music assumes itself as a problematizing element and participant in the context of a film narrative, fuelling connections and contrasts between sound and image that add layers of meaning to what the viewer sees and interprets. Thus, it is intended to promote in students the following knowledge and skills:

a) Understand the impact of music on the meanings of image and film;

b) Understand the articulation of music with other sound components of the film (dialogues, noises, environments, etc.);

c) Know different styles and possibilities of musical scoring for cinema;

d) Mastering theoretical and practical tools of musical scoring for cinema;

e) Develop a profile and an individual and artistic perspective regarding musical scoring for cinema.
