      The premise of doubling provides a rich terrain of metaphoric possibilities for film composers. In this talk, Dr. Schneller will discuss scores for Doppelgänger films including Bernard Herrmann's Cape Fear (1962) and Sisters (1973) and Andrew Hewitt's The Double (2013). Each of these scores features sophisticated metaphoric cross-domain mappings between musical structure and dramatic premise, in which the concept of duality or split personality is reflected in the domain of music through techniques like repetition, inversion, retrograde, and intervallic doubling.
