He has written widely on music video, popular music and popular culture for several decades and has conducted research on both Western music videos and the nature of music video as a local communication medium in Papua New Guinea and Vanuatu.

Music Video: History, Modality and Analysis

Music videos have been produced for over 45 years and are an enduringly popular form that has still not been given the degree or depth of analysis it merits. The presentation will commence by addressing aesthetic, institutional and economic aspects of music videos in an historical context and their availability via broadcast and online platforms. Discussion will then shift to the formal nature of music videos and appropriate ways to analyse them. This will involve a discussion of modality in music videos – the multiple operations of the text and how they can be deployed to promote music tracks and recording artists. Key examples will be screened and discussed with particular regard to their intertextuality – their allusion to other texts and their creation of layers of meaning between these.
