The sounds that make films great
Films didn’t start off having soundtracks – but once they did, there was no turning back…

Some film compositions become hits, others become so iconic they begin to lead a life of their own! Why is some film music more popular than others? How much of the popularity is related to the film itself? Where do composers get their inspiration from, and how do they use music to enhance the scenes as requested by the director?

Part of MOViE MOViE Life is Art Festival, this edition of “Sounds Great!” sees conductor Ken Lam exploring a selection of magnificent film scores from Star Wars, Harry Potter, The Godfather, Cinema Paradiso, Schindler’s List etc by film music greats such as John Williams, Nino Rota, Ennio Morricone and more, analysing their formulae for success. Never again will you be able to watch a film without also “seeing the music”!
