Music That Moves You
Castle Point 2019
Sunday 4:30PM in Panels 3
Panel Description
Everything we watch has a background score: thematic music that is specifically written for a scene or a character or a mood. In this panel, we survey soundtracks from many popular shows to analyze and celebrate how music creates contrast, elevates emotions, and in some cases, drives the narrative.
Part 1 - Why music?

Part 2 - Creating Emotion via Tone and Contrast

Part 3 - World Building via Association and Motif

Part 4 - Diegetic Music

Part 5 - Synthesis
Sources, Inspiration, and Further Reading
