    That would severely reduce the number of my favourite scores.
  1. As Edmund said.
    In times of Spotify I do give a listen occasionally to scores of films I have not seen and probably will not see. But yes, my film music CD collection very much mirrors my DVD/BR collection.

    Bach's music is vibrant and inspired.

    Yes, therein lies the fundamental difference between Volker and I, despite our disconcerting overlap in taste. The film is the furthest thing from my mind, and I want to remove it as far as humanly possible from my awareness while listening to soundtracks.
    I am extremely serious.

    This is a well crafted piece but without a film to relate to all the bombast seems empty.


    Does that mean you only listen to film scores from films you've seen?


    I perfectly undertstand where the captain is coming from. With very few exceptions, you can hear when a composer just tries and goe for the feel of film music, and did not actually compose for an existing film.
    There is an added layer of emotion, a suggestion of the emotive visual aspect that gives film music an added dimension (not to mention its very raison d'être!).

    It's not that film muisc outside of the film is empty.
    It's that film music WITHOUT a film is empty.
    Especially when it's basically all old-skool MV power chords and tricks.

    Oh.
    OK.

    You're weird.

  2. Yes. So are we all. wink

    I would never say that film music outside the film is empty. If I thought so listening to that stuff outside the film would not make any sense.
    But indeed the connection between film and score is crucial for me. In a way I really don't listen to the music outside the film because the film is part of my perception whenever I hear the music. That isn't to say I literally project the film before my inner eye, but images are there, the film's message is there, the feeling is there. So much so that listening to a score is a surrogate to actually revisit the film.
    I might strongly connect to mediocre film music if I love the film.
    I might remain lukewarm to a great score if I do not connect to the film. I will recognize it as great music. But I might fail to emotionally connect. In this regard I prefer classical music.

    I love films. I love music. Film music is the natural intersection.

  4. I found this commercial music rather appealing:

    With a little research I found the compsoer was Matthia Hacksteiner.
