In the beginning there was creepy music that turned into a train on tracks, this makes the audience feel scared and tense in the beginning. Except sometimes when the movie got more intense like the time Curley was going to kill Lennie the music gets loud and dramatic, that impacts the audience because they become intrigued about what is going to happen from the noisy, intense background. Another dramatic music scene was when Lennie was fighting Curley. There was loud music that had a dramatic feel. Every time the movie would bring up their “dream” which their American Dream the music would get soft and a happy melody.
Sound is very important in this film because of lot of sound is edited to fit in certain spots including music. During the activist movement, we can clearly hear the hurt in these people voices. Riots, shouting and clapping were all heard in most of the shots along with a voice in the background explaining exactly what is going on. Music was edited into some of the scenes to help give more of a scary or haunted approach. There was also sounds that were in scenes which sounded like someone or something huge is about to take place.
The sounds of the play work in a very similar fashion. Even before the play, there was a plethora of songs from the Simpsons being played while the audience waited for the production to begin. The play does have musical elements so there are many times that the dialogue calls for random spots of song. This important for the understanding the play as a whole. The songs set the mood for each scene.
In the beginning of the movie they used suspenseful music and imagery to keep the viewer more interested and make the viewer want to know what the “Secret” is and this is part of the logical chain of reasoning known as Pathos. Pathos is
The piece that was played during this particular piece was titled “Miracle of the Ark”. This particular piece was rather ominous and made the seen overall seem very suspenseful in the build up to the ark finally being opened. The actual moment that the ark is opened in the movie the orchestra quiets down and the string instruments play a rather fast suspenseful note while everyone looks on to see what is in the ark. It is then that the scene gets more intense with ghosts guarding the ark and melting anyone that looks at them. To make this scene seem more intense and powerful the orchestra really matched that and grew in volume.
In the movie they played music to make it suspenseful. My first piece of text is that when Mrs.Stevenson heard the killer in her house the music changed to scary suspenseful music.(SWN, Lucille Fletcher) This made the movie better because when reading the text there was no suspenseful music to make it more interesting. Another, piece of evidence is that when figuring out that the husband sign a contract to kill Mrs.Stevenson the music changed to scary.(SWN, Lucille Fletcher) That made the movie better because the music is what the audience more interested. That is how the music makes the movie
Through out the documentary, different scenes have background music that connects to what is happening. One example was a scene where Caroline is baking treats. Music was placed over top of the baking scene and was depicted as sweet, creating the vibe and sense of joy and innocence. The music placed in a cooking scene gave the impression of innocence and kindness that leads to having Caroline Grills, being kind hearted just as the music portrayed her to be. By including the joyful sweet music with Caroline’s case study; the composer has made sure that this is how the audience will sense both Caroline and her case, guiltless and kind hearted.
Like music in a movie, as the action increases, the music increases, we can relate this to the story as well, as Connie begins to become nearer to adulthood, the more clear the music becomes.. The common occurrence of background music occurs frequently throughout the story, which keeps adding integrity to the motif of the story, once you have it, there’s no turning back. In this story, music symbolizes the suspense of adulthood. Jane went out on the town with her friends, “her walk which could be child like and bobbing, or languid enough to make anyone think she was hearing music in her head”(318) bringing to the reader’s attention that Jane wants to be perceived as mature and adult like in this scenario hence the author's addition of music to this scene. “ Her face gleaming with a joy that had nothing to do with Eddie or even this place; it might have been the music”(318).
There are only two instruments used in the few scenes that have music, piano is used during the sad and to make the audience feel the anxiety felt by the character. An example of this is after Gilbert snaps and beats Arnie, then he drives away in his truck away from Endora with only this music playing. On the other hand, whenever there is a scene full of happiness a guitar plays. This usually happens whenever Gilbert and Arnie are having brotherly bonding or when there is a love scene between Gilbert and Becky. But the most compelling and used element is this movie is the lack of music.
This was only the beginning of what the narrator felt as Sonny played. He discussed how he could feel Sonny’s pain and struggle through every note he hit. He described the things he saw, such as their deceased parents, Grace, and just about every important event in his life flashed before his eyes. Sonny casted a spell over his brother with just the notes from his music playing. That very moment was something so special for both the brothers that they will cherish
They are all trying to figure out where he came from. In Field of Dreams, Ray Kinsella, hears a voice come from the field of his corn field one night. It tells him “If you build, he will come”. So Ray sets out to build a baseball field with the support of his wife, Annie.
Early in the film, the importance of background music and its use can be seen. The music is used to create the mood, whether it be the eerie violin audio that often can be heard at times where suspense is anticipated or the same music to create sorrow for the overall significance of the film. The film being built upon a murder case creates fury and differing viewpoints between the main characters which often can be related to prejudice. The use of details not only makes the murder more interesting but also the overall scene more intense. The detailed dialogue among the characters is so precise it offers minute details such as the witness statement of the time of the crime, the entry way of the weapon, and the witness testifying without her glasses.
This is similar to the way theatre uses music as “a sense of ritual return” (Berger 475). In La La Land, the score weaves each scene together and accompanies me through every step of the story. Each song is either repeated or slightly altered and this reprise of the score constantly reminds me that I am still residing in the fantasies of La La Land. Additionally, the tendency of using xylophones as the main instrument accompanying the songs allows me to feel as if I am part of a dream. For example, during the scene when Mia is driving down the street after rehearsing for her play, the song City of Stars plays in the background with a slightly slower rhythm using xylophones.
