“The Hitchcock Institute’s 2011 Spring Speaker Series: Music in Polycultural America” 

DESCRIPTION: The H. Wiley Hitchcock Institute for Studies in American Music and in collaboration with the Conservatory of Music, the Department of Africana Studies, and the American Studies Program at Brooklyn College present: Music in Polycultural America, "Terror Chords and Jungle Drums: Music in the Horror Film." A common technique in horror film scoring is the use of ethnic music to represent the monstrous Other, a practice with obvious and uncomfortable ideological connotations. The musical Other in 1930s–40s Hollywood zombie films such as White Zombie, King of the Zombies, and I Walked With a Zombie are examined, arguing that the use of music in these films is more complex and interesting—on both artistic and ideological levels—than their lurid names and generally shoestring budgets would suggest. Jordan Stokes is a chancellor’s fellow at the CUNY Graduate Center whose research focuses on the intersection of film music and film genre.
