Music Representation of the Science of Deduction
This paper examines the musical representation of the Science of Deduction throughout the many cinematographic adaptions of Doyle’s novels of Sherlock Holmes during the last 50 years and how they relate to the novels. The aim of this thesis is to ascertain whether David Arnold and Michael Price’s musical characterisation of the Science of Deduction is the first example that represents in an all-rounded way the deductive reasoning process as described by Doyle in his novels and as perceived by the reader. While the overall quality of the OST in each example is never in question, personal opinions are given throughout when it comes to the characterisation of the detective’s deductions.
