Music is an art. Famous Film Composer John Williams said that Writing a tune is like sculpting. You get four or five notes, you take one out and move one around, and you do a bit more and eventually, as the sculptor says, 'In that rock there is a statue, we have to go find it." Music is very much an art. One cannot see it, but they can feel it. It is an art that must be listened to. Just as looking at a painting, music can be up to interpretation. Music reminds us of our past, present, and future. We take the melodies and tuck them away in our unconscious mind. Sometimes we bring them out when the need arises or when we are reminded of them. An array of musical notes innocently combine into the concoction that the music writer has composed. Musical notes alone aren’t aware of what they are doing to us, but the writer knows; the writer molds them into an emotion or a variety of emotions. It takes passion to create a work of musical art. Trilling harps and soft strokes on a cello entice the listener to fashion an emotion into something meaningful and genuine to themselves. Film composer Howard Shore said I want to write and feel the drama. Music is essentially an emotional language, so you want to feel something from the relationships and build music based on those feelings . The instrumental music in films are made by film composers. Film composers aren’t as popular as “bands” and “singers.” Film composers are not main stream. They are in the background, but they contribute greatly to the entertainment industry and to the art of music. These are the people who hold the musical paintbrush that breathes life into movies. The film composer John Williams has composed many film scores. His music is tremendously famous. He has composed film scores for the Harry Potter film series and the Star
Walker 4 Wars film series. There are many fans around the world that become excited when they hear one of his scores because they love the movies and those movies give them the feeling of euphoria.
