Music and Film
Music and film are two mediums that have been inextricably intertwined for almost a century. Whether we are conscious of it or not, a soundtrack provides the underlying emotion for the visual feast our eyes absorb from the screen. Inside our brains, the pictorial and the auditory combine to lift our experience into, what the famous film composer Bernard Herrmann described as “the realm of poetry.” What better way to explore this joyous phenomenon than to explore the lives and inner workings of the music makers themselves?
