Article excerpt

This second issue of Music, Sound, and the Moving Image is a genuine pleasure for us. When we began the journal, one of our hopes was that we could help move the field away from its Anglo-American focus, which characterizes our own work as well as that of most of the established scholars (though both Claudia Gorbman and Rick Altman do work on French film, it's worth remembering). This issue certainly takes a step in that direction; all three articles are on non-Anglophone works. The inclusion of Anja Mølle Lindelof 's essay on early Danish television is a particular delight, since television is another area of focus for us. Using an early Danish television series, Record Parade, she develops some vocabulary and ways of thinking about how television visualizes music performance. Dong Liang's essay on India Song and Emanuele D'Onofrio's on Paz! both bring new areas into focus: India Song and Duras in general receive quite a bit of attention from feminist and postcolonial scholars, but they never discuss sound and music, and Italian film music after Morricone and Rota has not had much attention at all.

We hope this second issue of Music, Sound, and the Moving Image inspires more research, and more submissions on non-Anglophone film and television. We are still very much hoping to see submissions on moving image texts from outside of Europe and North America. And another reminder: if there are important works that have not yet appeared in English, please bring them to our attention. …
