What do you focus on when you watch movies?
– The main actor/actress?
– The plot?
– Different camera shots?
– (for the ladies) Ryan Reynold’s abs?
How about movie scores? Not the soundtrack, but the score! Night/Day difference..
- A movie soundtrack is usually made up of bands that have already recorded records specifically for the movie. Example: Garden State
- A movie score is simply the lyric-less, instrumental music that sets the mood for a specific scene.. Example: Titans Score
I’ve loved movie scores for as long as I can remember. It’s the first thing I notice in movies. Doesn’t matter how crappy the movie is, if the score is great — all is good. If you ever want to surprise me with anything, just get me a movie score.
Because of this movie score obsession of mine, it sparked an interest in “Post-Rock” or “Instrumental-Rock” music.
Really makes for good “pondering” music..
No words — Just instrumental goodness!
What’s your favorite movie score? Favorite Post-Rock band?
