Gothic Music: The Sounds of the Uncanny traces sonic Gothic from the echoing footsteps in Gothic novels to the dark soundscapes of Goth club nights. This broad perspective importantly widens the scope of Gothic music from Goth subculture to literature, film, television and video games. This book also provides the musical and theoretical definition of Gothic music that lacks in current scholarship. Whether voicing the spectral beings of early cinema, announcing virtual terrors in video games, or intensifying the nocturnal rituals of Goth, Gothic music represents the sounds of the uncanny.The X-Files glissandi often present a slide from one tonality into another, hovering on one chord and then suddenly gliding onto a higher ... One example can be heard in the melancholy piano melody appearing when someone is lonely or when there is romance in the air. ... So important is the glissando as a musical signifier for Lost that the show has chosen a single upward glissando as its title theme.
