The UNC Music Department is hosting a conference entitled Aaron Copland and the American Cultural Imagination, to take place on August 22-23. Our keynote lecturer, Dr. Lerner, teaches at Davidson College and specializes in the history and analysis of music and screen media like film music, television music, and video game music. Currently, he is researching the transmission of musical styles between cinema practices of the early twentieth century and video games of the 1970s.
