How does score work with picture? Two ways - policy and vocabulary:


The relationship between the film and the score, and how the two relate to each other, is called ‘policy’. This is established through the placement (spotting) of music in the film, and the level of emotional depth requested.

Think about the difference between the scores for any generic action movie or comedy; what does the music need to accomplish? How does a composer accomplish that for each of those?


Instrumentation - instruments might inform time, place, culture; etc.

Harmonic language - what is the music of the time/genre?

Melodic shapes - are they expansive and grand, or close and modest?

Music style - is there a style of music that the scene demands, or that supports the dramatic need?

From Fred Karlin’s book, “On The Track”:
“What is my film about? What am I trying to say? Who is my main character and what are they feeling, thinking in every scene? Work you did with the actors should be helpful with your composer and musical conversations.”

Of the 21 questions, I simplified down to what I feel are the 4 most important:

1. Which scenes need music?
5. Are you scoring dialogue scenes? Be careful!
8. Where should the music start and stop?
21. What type/style of music will you use?
