Music That Moves You
Youmacon 2018
Saturday 8:00PM in Panel Room 320 (MOVED)
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 - What is score vs soundtrack?

Part 2 - Creating Emotion via Tone and Contrast

Part 3 - World Building via Cultural Shorthand

Part 4 - Leitmotif

Part 5 - Diegesis
