Taking its cue from Deleuze's definition of minor cinema as one which engages in a creative act of becoming, this collection explores the multifarious ways that music has been used in the cinemas of various countries in Australasia, Africa, Latin America and even in Europe that have hitherto received little attention. The authors consider such film music with a focus on the role it has played creating, problematizing, and sometimes contesting, the nation. Film Music in 'Minor' National Cinemas addresses the relationships between film music and the national cinemas beyond Hollywood and the European countries that comprise most of the literature in the field. Broad in scope, it includes chapters that analyze the contribution of specific composers and songwriters to their national cinemas, and the way music works in films dealing with national narratives or issues; the role of music in the shaping of national stars and specific use of genres; audience reception of films on national music traditions; and the use of music in emerging digital video industries.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Mentioned. * The Chronicle of Higher Education *
This book competently addresses two elements in need of further scholarly attention: non-mainstream cinema and film music. From Cuba to New Zealand, and from steampunk to samba, this collection is an eclectic mix of films and their soundtracks. The authors juggle advanced concepts from film theory with themes such as censorship, nostalgia, nationalism and many others to paint a complex relationship between more global mainstream trends and localized translations and innovations. * Justin A. Williams, Lecturer in Music, University of Bristol, UK *
