Composer and teacher Alain Mayrand once tweeted “You don’t score the man running, you score WHY he runs! Know the story!” This is film music gospel. Jerry Goldsmith would frequently espouse this idea. He never wanted to score what was already shown on screen. It’s already there! He wanted to compose music that tapped into all the reasons, emotions, and hidden narratives buried inside what we were seeing. He understood that that was the unique power music had over all other cinematic ingredients. Goldsmith frequently voiced his frustration over directors who wanted him to simply score what everybody was already seeing.
