A Co-Presentation of World Science Festival and the New York Philharmonic
Alec Baldwin is joined by the Coen brothers and renowned guests from the worlds of filmmaking, film music, and science to explore the uniquely powerful role of music in shaping the narrative flow and the emotional impact of film. From Stanley Kubrick’s classic 2001: A Space Odyssey to the Coen brothers’ Fargo and True Grit, this program examines the creative process of scoring feature films and the neuro-scientific insights that reveal how such compositions profoundly shape the audience experience.
The Mind, Music and Moving Images is part of the New York Philharmonic’s The Art of the Score: Film Week at the Philharmonic, running September 17–21, 2013, offering two concert programs of film music—Hitchcock! and 2001: A Space Odyssey.
