While on the way home from Sydney, Australia I checked out the documentary Score. It was inspiring and I learned several things one of which is there are no rules when it comes to composing music…. making a track…. making a beat. In the end you just gotta do you and unleash the God given gift. Music is one thing you cannot touch but only listen too which is so cool! There’s so much to talk about in the video but putting it all down is the trick, eh I’ll just share what I thought. Good job Matt Schrader!
I did see that deadlines are key when it comes to doing music for movies. Composers are under heavy pressure to continually come up with god like compositions that inspire and lead audiences and help them connect with a movie. It is the most awesome thing to tell a story with music…ahh. If you haven’t seen it and appreciate music…. go watch it.
Its good to gain insight from composers you grew up listening to and hearing about the history of music in the movie business. It’s inspiring how creativity and music go hand and hand. The effort that goes into creating something soul touching is…wow! So many movies are being put out and there’s not enough time to listen to the latest soundtracks from movies. Oh yeah, there are streaming services out there such as Pandora, Spotify, and the other platforms. Now its just making the time to listen… that’s the struggle.
It was good to see full orchestra’s coming in and playing a composers music with no prior time of playing the music. That is soo cool! I liked seeing several of the recording studios where some of the most iconic music and scores have been composed. It would be cool to stop by Abbey Road Studios for more inspiration. I must add, a goal of mine is to do a score for a movie, it will happen…I believe… now watch and listen.
