The intense and continuing popularity of the long-running television show Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997-2003) has long been matched by the range and depth of the academic critical response. This volume, the first devoted to the show's imaginative and widely varied use of music, sound, and silence, helps to develop an increasingly important and inadequately covered area of research - the many roles of music in contemporary television. In addressing this significant gap, this book provides an exemplary overview of the functions of music and sound in the interpretation of a television show. This is done through analyses that focus on scoring and source music, the title theme, the music production process, the critically acclaimed musical episode (voted number 13 in Channel Four's One Hundred Greatest Musicals), the symbolic and dramatic use of silence, and the popular reception of the show by its international fan base. In keeping with contemporary trends in the study of popular musics, a variety of critical approaches are taken from musicology, cultural studies, and media and communication studies, specifically employing critique, musical analysis, industry studies, and hermeneutics.

Häufig wiederkehrende kommunikative Aufgaben werden mit Hilfe konventionalisierter sprachlicher Verfahren gelöst. Dabei richten sich die Textproduzierenden nach inhaltlichen und formalen Mustern, die in einer Sprachgemeinschaft zirkulieren. Die Muster werden aber nicht nur reproduziert, sondern auch kreativ variiert: In der Massenkommunikation müssen Beiträge zugleich vertraut und neuartig-eigenständig wirken, wenn sie sich vom übrigen Angebot am Markt abheben sollen. In der Individualkommunikation kann es reizen, in den eigenen Beiträgen - im Chat, in einer E-Mail oder im «Massen-Individualmedium» Blog - durch kreativen Umgang mit den Mustern sein Können unter Beweis zu stellen und sich so zu profilieren. Welche kommunikativen Praktiken schlagen sich in welchen kommunikativen Mustern nieder, und welche individuellen, gesellschaftlichen und kulturellen Verhaltensweisen werden dadurch weiter eingeschliffen oder verändert? Die Beiträge in diesem Band gehen diesen Fragen nach und stellen Untersuchungen vor zur Kommunikation mit Postkarten, Briefen, E-Mails, Chats, Blogs, Foren, Werbebildern, Fernseh-Comedies und Rundfunknachrichten.
