Music and Film in Oceania [working title]
edited by Gregory Camp, University of Auckland
Over the past few decades film production in Oceania (broadly defined as
New Zealand, Australia, and the islands that comprise Melanesia,
Micronesia, and Polynesia) has grown exponentially, making Australia and
New Zealand in particular important international hubs for filmmaking.
These decades have contemporaneously seen a growth in methodological
approaches to film music. This edited collection seeks to present the
current state and the history of film music in the region, drawing together
a variety of film musicological methods (ethnographic, historical,
analytical, sociological, etc.) to explore the varied soundscapes found in
Topics might include, but are not limited to:
- Filming indigenous music
- Musical representations of indigenous people
- Musics of colonisation
- Filmic representations of colonial music-making
- Hollywood representations of Oceanic music
- Audiovisual representation of Oceanic landscapes
- Music composition and production in local film industries
- History of music within local film industries
Proposals for chapters of 7,000-9,000 words are welcomed from interested
