NiE Music of movies

SINCE the beginning of motion pictures, music has played an essential role in film-making and today the music of movies is still one of the most important aspects.

Movies use music to help tell the story, shape the characters, support feelings like sadness, joy, tension, danger, and give locations and time a specific quality.

Whether it is a drama, comedy, horror or romance, music is used in various ways in movies to complement the different scenes and serves as a powerful guide as to how the viewer should feel about what is happening on the screen.

A movie may be accompanied by an underscore, a pre-existing hit or a theme song written specifically for the film.

Composers and musicians play a vital role in the film-making process, making music that highlights the movie and makes a long lasting connection with the viewers.
