Therefore, music provides a cue for the listener to tell... ... middle of paper ... ...t in a film and exactly how they felt in that moment. Most importantly, music sets the pace of a film to play on our emotions. Some films are slow and emotive that allow directors to incorporate music to influence the audience’s emotions; other are fast paced and exciting which can also exuded through the use of music. Where would the art of cinema be without the use of music today? I know for sure that films wouldn’t be as powerful and as captivating to the mind and soul of viewers without the use of this powerful tool.
The picture and the music need to be in perfect harmony.

The importance of film music is considered a jewel for manipulating the viewer’s emotions and immerses them into the movie.
I would like to expand this feeling into the film. Horror stories and films are generally associated with things such as suspense, characters, how well the person can relate, dark scary atmospheres, and loud scary sounds.

Now speaking the other way, something that I think could be gained from changing a film to a short story is that in a story the author is generally able to add a significant amount of detail to the writing. Something that is lost when transforming a film to short story is the visual imagery.
It can be used to enhance the plot, reflect the theme and enhance the mood. It can help pinpoint the dialogue and it can also, at times, surpass the spoken word in conveying psychological elements.

The film experience must imitate in some way all three overlapping dimensions of subjective reality; the symbolic, the real and the imaginary. The method by which this is done involves very heavily the use of film music.” Works Cited Zizek, Slavoj.
A films soundtrack can add to a movie by enhancing the world of the characters by making you feel emotions for the characters. Music can inspire you and inspire the characters to overcome their conflict and reach their goals. The production mixer is crucial to making the sounds of the world and bringing to life the world of the characters. The mixer gathers all the sounds of a film diegetic and non-diegetic and mixes them to make the audio levels at a good hearing
Music, Dialogue, and Mise-en-scène in the Dance of Death In all cinematic works the mise-en-scène is one of the most influential aspects of the film’s meaning. Mise-en-scène is important because it shows how the cinematic space is organized and where the camera is in respect to the characters and the surrounding environment. Although the mise-en-scène is imperative by itself, the effect of the music and dialogue that accompany the scene in a film adds to its meaning. These facts are supported by the “Dance of Death” scene of the narrative Bamboozled by Spike Lee. The dialogue written by Mr. Lee and the music score chosen for the film by Terence Blanchard aid in the overall cinematic effect of these scenes in the movie.
Research in this area is duly required as it could potentially act as an impetus for composers to broaden their horizons in terms of composition. Linked with this is the issue Julie Brown brings up- many analyse the score for a film on its own (in a symphonic manner). However film music is not necessarily concert music. This ties in with the some points I have made thus far (regarding film music analysis and the lack of development in film music). A common language between music theory and film theory needs to be developed as we have reached a standstill.
Different from other types of films, the music in Phantom of the Opera was used by all the characters, as a way to tell their part of the story. The music created a convincing surrounding for the film, guided the audiences. The music was constantly a signifier of emotion, as the characters expressed their feelings through the songs. The music score was an emotional and scary score that tied into their diegetic/non-diegetic singing, giving the main characters an identity, specifying situations and places to help connect certain points. When we hear the dark music play throughout the movie, it plays a certain theme, that theme gives the viewers a clear hint of who or what the music is talking about.
This allows the audience to understand the emotions which are being portrayed by the characters in the film. As well as the suspense which is being brought on also the mood of the dialogue in each scene. Howard Shore caused a musical adventure and created an environment musically that helped the audience have an emotional feel for the movie also to help increase the dialogue and action to the film. This allowed the film the “cherry on top” complete feeling; intensifying the movie experience. Throughout the film Howard Shore incorporates many popular artists such as: Sia, Vampire Weekend, Muse, CeeLo Green Beck & Bat for Lashes and the list continues with a few more great bands and artists which were featured in the film.
Career in film scoring: Film Arranger Introduction: Film scoring is all about making sure the music others create, goes well with a particular scene in a movie/TV shows or advertisements. The advantage of this is that you get to have fun and know that your music will be heard and enjoyed by others. However, the field is very hard to get into as there is a lot of competition. It is very difficult to make a living off this career as most projects want original music, but if a person puts in enough effort they could actually make a fortune. The music is important in the film as it creates the atmosphere.
