The Importance of Music in Movies and TV Programs

A soundtrack is music that is synchronized to and accompanies the images of motion pictures, TV programs, books, or video games. They can be recorded music for motion pictures such as “Titanic,” “Moulin Rouge!,” and “Star Wars” and TV programs such as “Game of Thrones.” However, soundtracks are independent works despite being intended for motion pictures and TV programs.

A soundtrack can also be music specifically written for a book like in the case of J.R.R. Tolkien’s works namely “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings” and Steve Perry’s Star Wars novel called “Shadows of the Empire.” It can also be music written for video games such as “Final Fantasy.” Finally, it can also be music arranged for theme parks, cruise ships, and special events.

Despite the many uses of soundtracks, the term loosely refers to the music used in a movie, TV show or a commercial album inspired by them. Some songs that are not in the movie can also be part of a soundtrack.

Behind the soundtracks are musical supervisors. Music supervision is considered one of the most coveted jobs by people who have passion for music. Musical supervisors have the gift of matching songs with images. They usually help directors choose the suitable music according to the directors’ vision as well as the mood that scenes intend to convey. Moreover, music selected for a particular work can be copyrighted works of art. Apart from being an expert in the creative process, musical supervisors also need to know the legal processes that come with music selection.

Soundtracks are very crucial to the success of motion pictures and TV programs. A common moviegoer may not appreciate the work that has been put into soundtracks. However, watching movies or TV shows is not just a visual experience. Rather, it is an experience for the senses.

Soundtracks give movies and TV programs their individual identities. They also help set the mood of the story, convey emotions effectively, round up the atmosphere of a scene, and make scenes more dramatic. With all these mentioned, soundtracks and sound effects are as important as actors and actresses, visual effects, cinematography, and screenplay. Without them, movies and series are just like black and white pictures — dragging and lifeless.
