This guide analyses the score, places Danny Elfman and Batman in context and examines its legacy and influence. This guide also includes an analysis of thematic unity, style, characterisation, instrumentation, orchestration, key relationships and dramatic pacing.
It includes an exploration of Danny Elfman's musical background prior to Batman and working relationship with Steve Bartek and Tim Burton plus a brief synopsis of the film and characters from a thematic point of view.
Three case studies provide students with a detailed look at the use of music within specific scenes and an overview of how the film fits in with both previous and subsequent incarnations of Batman offers students a broader understanding.
A bibliography, discography, recommendations for further reading plus a technical glossary complete this guide.
