A film score is original music written specifically to accompany a film. The score forms part of the film's soundtrack , which also, usually includes pre-existing music, dialogue and sound effects , and comprises a number of orchestral, instrumental, or choral pieces called cues , which are timed to begin and end at specific points during the film in order to enhance the dramatic narrative and the emotional impact of the scene in question. Film scores encompass an enormous variety of styles of music, depending on the nature of the films they accompany. The majority of scores are orchestral works rooted in Western classical music , but many scores are also influenced by jazz , rock , pop , blues , new-age and ambient music , and a wide range of ethnic and world music styles. Since the s, a growing number of scores have also included electronic elements as part of the score, and many scores written today feature a hybrid of orchestral and electronic instruments. Since the invention of digital technology and audio sampling , many modern films have been able to rely on digital samples to imitate the sound of live instruments, and many scores are created and performed wholly by the composers themselves, by using music composition software , synthesizers, samplers, and MIDI controllers. Songs such as pop songs and rock songs are usually not considered part of the film's score, [ citation needed ] although songs do also form part of the film's soundtrack.

M ovies about musicians, whether biopics, fictions or documentaries, are a fixture in cinema, but judging by the flurry of activity over the past 12 months — with acclaimed films about Aretha Franklin, Freddie Mercury and Elton John among others — we are in an uncommonly busy period, if not a flat-out golden age. There is, of course, far more to these movies than money-spinning: a good biopic or documentary can bring the songs to life, and illuminate the struggles of their creators. But what do musicians make of this lively cinematic category? We asked six eminent songwriters — including a few who have scored movies, and others who have been the subject of movies — to each pick their five favourite music films. Born in to an English mother and Italian father, Anna Calvi grew up in Twickenham and studied music at Southampton University, specialising in violin and guitar. Calvi recorded a track for the sci-fi movie Insurgent and has scored the new season of Peaky Blinders. Sadly, touring for me is more about hanging out in a dressing room for hours and having cold rider food for dinner — not quite as glamorous. And the songs are timeless. Such a devastating and beautiful film. As a viewer, you feel almost guilty to be watching her — she was watched enough — but this is a respectful portrait and I like that it celebrates her music.

Because film scores are often steeped in big emotions and rarely have lyrics that require your attention , they make for great music for working, working out , or studying. Quartz picked 16 of our favorite film and TV scores of the past year—and the ideal times to listen to them. Happy listening! Toward the end of the piece above, in particular, Krlic mixes in unexpectedly epic chord progressions in between groups of dissonant strings, as if they are trying desperately to resolve themselves, to find order in the chaos and achieve a new purpose after being lost for so long. Nicholas Britell is one of the most versatile composers today. It sounds like what an unfathomably rich American media dynasty might think their theme song would sound like, while still betraying the deep sadness and loneliness most of them feel despite all their wealth and power. Taron Egerton, the lead actor, performed all the songs himself, while John served as an executive producer.
