The Beauty of Music Scores

with 10 comments

When you go see a movie, watch a television show, or play a video game, do you ever notice the music playing in the background throughout? Especially during a special scene or moment?

It is this music that makes up a score.

Some people notice scores easily if they are really into what they are watching. They are enjoying it so much, that they end up remembering the exact moment a certain piece of music is played.  The first time this occurred for me was when I was playing Kingdom Hearts II and heard this music:

 

Afterwards, a friend of mine introduced me to music from an old Japanese animated show I loved called Sailor Moon:

 

At the time, I wasn’t into American television shows and movies much. It wasn’t until many years later that I became open-minded and started to enjoy them, starting with this piece from the television show Heroes:

 

The rest is history. Not only do I have scores from television shows and video games, but I also have scores from movies such as Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Pirates of the Caribbean.  Each score represents each visual work with a unique and awe-inspiring sound. Each song in a score represents a character or moment in a way that captivates more than just the eyes.  They can move your heart and soul.
