Matthew Sweet explores the trend among composers of creating scores for imaginary films.
Matthew Sweet explores the trend among composers of creating music for films that do not actually exist. Matthew looks at music for "Imaginary films", music written for films that don't exist and also scores for lost films. He interviews Nick Phoenix and Thomas Bergersen from the production company "Two Steps From Hell" about the new phenomenon of "Epic Music" - a genre of orchestral music that has appeared from their creation of music for film trailers, which is often different from the music that features in the final film. The Classic Score of the week is from "Gaslight", a film that was nearly lost as Matthew explains.
