Movie Score

If you’ve ever seen a movie, you know that the music they select can set the tone for what is happening or is about to happen. In a horror film, as you hear the violins become louder with a quick march, your entire body fills with suspense. In a love story, those same violins can soften the scene and send a feeling of love and compassion as they play softly, like tress swaying in the wind. Moving on to an action movie, the violins play quickly through the scene, with desperation. Their constant playing is that of a sprinter, never stopping to take a breath, moving as if though every sound will be the last. I find it incredible that the same instrument has the ability to set the tone for what we feel. There are no words or pictures necessary the tone is set on the music alone. Simply by listening to the violins, we can immediately feel different emotions. As you head out into the day what is the music playing in your head? What violins do you play to the world around you? What is your tone?
Is it Blah Blah Blah !!!!!!
Is it a constant warm up of, ME me ME me ME me MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
What movie are you? Horror? Comedy? Action? Tragedy? Love Story?
You’re the composer of your own life movie, you get to right the score. You may not think so but we can all hear the violins playing in your head. Make sure you put the right score to the movie you want your life to be about or you might end up in what you think is a feel good movie, with horror music in the background and that would make one heck of a comedy.
