CHARTER (culled from the Call for Votes)
Rec.music.movies is an unmoderated newsgroup welcoming discussion
and information on all aspects of music as it is used in motion
pictures and television, including:
--Film/television score collecting and appreciation, whether it be
serious or casual
--Film/television music history
--Film/television music composers or artists
--Reviews of film music soundtrack releases on CD or LP
--Reviews/discussion of music used in TV series or miniseries

Discussion will not be limited to any certain type of music (i.e.,
orchestral, pop-rock, original or adapted); exchanges on ALL types
of music used in motion pictures and television are encouraged.
Have you found a copy of "The Caine Mutiny" LP in your basement and
don't know what to do with it? Who's your favorite film music
composer? What song did you think should have won Best Original
Song at the Oscars? Just what IS "diegetic music," anyway? What's
the name of that song you heard in that movie you just saw? What's
your favorite TV theme song? Are you wondering if your favorite
movie music is out on CD? Which film music CDs do you recommend?
How do you think music should be used in films and on TV?
Rec.music.movies is the place for these questions (and answers).
