The soundtrack is an essential part of any audiovisual. We all remember its sonority, consciously or unconsciously. But music for images has special characteristics that require a specific and very focused study. The great variety of themes (futuristic, medieval, historical epics, horror, ethnic, romantic...) makes it necessary to know a wide range of harmonic, orchestral and, obviously, melodic options. The different themes, situations and atmospheres are very disparate, so the composer's theoretical preparation must be as extensive and versatile as possible. In short, he or she will have to be familiar with aesthetic languages that are very different from one another.

This book offers all kinds of solutions for the creation of music that requires a high level of technical knowledge and creativity conditioned by the dramatisation of an image. It fills a gap in the specialised bibliography, since other books on the subject only present film scores with meagre explanations of harmonic and instrumental technicalities. This volume, on the other hand, helps to tackle the ambitious and complex discipline of film scoring, and dives into the fundamental issues that every film score composer needs to know.
