"Music Behind the Masks: Fans' Reaction to the Sounds of Batman Villains"
Matthew's contributing chapter to this collection of scholarly explorations of media fandom focuses on the theory and psychology of musical scores composed for on-screen Batman villains and fans' resulting reactions as listening audiences. This chapter was the inaugural seed that grew to become Matthew's latest upcoming 2021 book Gotham City Sounds: The Music of Batman Villains.
