The different scoring strategies employed in supernatural and horror-based genres, comprising for example True Blood and Supernatural, are considered alongside cult shows set in our reality, such as Dexter, The Sopranos and 24. These discussions are complimented by in-depth case studies of musical approaches in two high-profile series: Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Hannibal. Written from a musicological standpoint but fully accessible to non-musicologists, the book significantly advances television and music studies."--Provided by publisher. 
520 8 |a "How does music enrich and define cult television series? This book analyzes theme tunes and scoring on television to reveal how composers construct a series' identity using musical idioms and instruments. Characters and plot developments, similarly, are enhanced by their musical accompaniment. The different scoring strategies employed in science fiction and horror-based genres, comprising for example Star Trek or Dr. Who, are considered alongside cult shows set in our reality, such as Dexter, The Sopranos and Queer as Folk. These discussions are complimented by in-depth case studies of musical approaches in three high-profile series: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Battlestar Galactica and Lost. Written from a musicological standpoint but fully accessible to non-musicologists, the book significantly advances television and music studies."--Back cover.
