5.0 out of 5 stars A handbook in film scoring, 8 Sep 2009
By 
This review is from: On the Track: A Guide to Contemporary Film Scoring (Paperback)
This is a fantastic book. Be prepared for a lot of reading! It's not a book that tells you how to write, but Fred Karlin has taken every situation in film scoring and talked to composers with different approaches, and the books shows you several ways to handle every kind of situation. It encourages you to study the situations discussed, so you can see for yourself. It's filled with great knowlegde and a lot of score excerpts! This is not a good book, if you don't know anything about scoring, or if you haven't read other books. I would suggest Richard Davis' book about film music. On The Track takes you to the advanced level. It's got appendixes with lots of great technical exercises and creative ones too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional, 29 Nov 2006
This review is from: On the Track: A Guide to Contemporary Film Scoring (Paperback)
This text is massively comprehensive and exceptionally detailed.

If you are remotely interested in the process of film or TV scoring you should own this book at least!

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best, 19 Jan 2012
This review is from: On the Track: A Guide to Contemporary Film Scoring (Paperback)
On the track is one of the most completed guide for film music composing; it has several examples taken from movies but one of the most important feature I've seen is that all topics are linked with practice, not only theoretic words. This from the very first page. I highly recommend this book.
