Composer Peter Golub, who is also the director of the Sundance Institute's film music program, will give the October Art Talk titled "The Power of Film Music," at the Kimball Art Center, 638 Park Ave., on Tuesday, Oct. 22, from 6 p.m. until 7 p.m.
Admission is free and the event is open to the public.
Golub will present examples about how music shapes a film and impacts the audience's perception.
"I'll be showing examples from my own work and some classic films to illustrate the different ways that music functions," Golub said in a statement.
Golub, has composed over 30 film scores, as well as concert works. His music is often heard in the theater, recently on Broadway in a production of The Heiress starring Jessica Chastain.
"Music can play a powerful role in how audiences experience films," he said. "Sometimes you may not notice it, but the music in a film can be a central part of the overall storytelling."
After the presentation, Golub will answer questions from the audience.
Art talks at the Kimball Art Center, a nonprofit organization, serve as a vehicle for education and discussion surrounding the center's exhibitions.
The Kimball Art Center staff encourages the public to enjoy and further the conversation on the visual arts.
