About This Event
Guest Lecturer: Chelsea Oden
Join us for a virtual lecture on Tone Color presented by Gonzaga's Music Department
Tone color, or timbre, is what makes Darth Vader's voice sound distinct from Yoda's, or a kazoo sound different from an orchestra. This lecture will investigate historical sounds of cinema, approaches to film music analysis, and how we might analyze timbre in recent fantasy film.
Chelsea Oden is an instructor of music at The New School in New York and a graduate teaching fellow in music theory at the University of Oregon. Her research focuses on timbre and embodiment in the overlap of film, music, and dance. She has presented her work internationally. Her chapter, "Timbre," is forthcoming in the Routledge Handbook of Film Music Analysis.
Gonzaga’s Music department is pleased to offer this unique opportunity to learn and grow in a virtual format so that you can participate regardless of your location.
