Weekly Thing #9: Film Music

July 16, 2008 | By | No Comments

There is no such thing as “generic film music,” no more than there are “generic films.”  Film music can run the gamut from Bernard Herrmann’s score for Psycho, to Danny Elfman’s scores for Tim Burton’s films, to Lalo Schifrin’s jazzy scores for movies like Bullitt.  There are countless film composers with greatly varying styles, so it is inaccurate to claim there can be such a thing as “generic film music.”

So anyway, I wrote some generic film music and I’m posting it here today.  This wasn’t written for a specific film, so feel free to make something up in your head.  Need help? Um, OK; picture a wide-open American prairie in the early 20th Century.  I leave it up to you whether or not Teddy Roosevelt is there.

Since I’m a Simpsons Fan, and I could think of a better title, I’m calling this one “The Embiggened Spirit.”  I just love upsetting English teachers.[powerpress]
