A movie’s soundtrack can make the film memorable or forgettable. Over coffee, I remember Jeff Steiner (New Media Franchise Inc.) and I agreeing that film music is an integral component of any film and we went on to sing a few bars of famous scores. Nietzche said, ‘Without music, life would be a mistake.” Would film making be a mistake without great soundtracks?
Both Richard Moule’s and Edward Matthews’s original tracks for The Gold Fish Bowl have such purity and soul in the stories they tell. I feel my characters feed on their music, that their emotions swell because of the sub text the music offers, like a welcomed family member in their lives.
Robert Browning said, “Who hears music feels his solitude peopled at once.” Music personified does ‘people’ our emotional backwoods. The following pics tell their own stories, but Richard’s and Edward’s music infuse the characters’ solitudes with soul.
