*Music, Sound, and the Moving Image* will be the first international
scholarly journal devoted to the study of the interaction between music and
sound with the entirety of moving image media =96 film, television, music
video, advertising, computer games, mixed-media installation, digital art,
live cinema, et alia. To be published by Liverpool University Press and
co-edited by Anahid Kassabian (Liverpool University) and Ian Gardiner
(Goldsmiths College), the journal will be truly interdisciplinary, inviting
contributions across a range of critical methodologies, to include
musicology and music analysis, film studies, popular music studies, cultura=
theory, aesthetics, semiotics, sociology, marketing, sound studies, and
music psychology. It is hoped that the journal also will provide an
important focus for the similarly diverse and expanding community of media
music scholars.

The journal will be published twice a year, beginning January 2007, and its
first issues will be open, embracing this diversity of topics and
approaches. As it progresses it is intended that themed issues, under a
guest editor, will alternate with open issues, perhaps encouraging writers
to explore areas under-represented in current literature. The editors
welcome contributions offering the broadest interpretation of the journal's
title, not only seeking to build upon the existing scholarship on film musi=
and film sound, but also to challenge its theoretical assumptions, and to
extend its boundaries to include the full variety of moving image media and
