The Project consists on trying to highlight the function of instrumentation and orchestration on the American film music (primarily of the second half of the XX century) through the musical analysis of three film scores, chosen by their representativeness and richness of orchestral procedures: Psycho: a suite for strings and Vertigo Suite, both composed by Bernard Herrmann. Referenced on musical tradition (basis of the uplifting of information), the musical analysis results will be confronted with the pre-determined function proposed by the authors of the compositions (in relation to the films in question) and submitted to observation. As a complement, significant examples of the utilization of the orchestra on film scores of the XX century will also be put in the processes of comparison.
