Music is the best

I remember seeing a rerun of The Twilight Zone when I was a kid that scared the bejeezus out of me. My parents turned down the volume and suddenly it was funny, not scary; cheesy, not serious. Music and sound make drama of any kind what it is, but I think they really add something within scifi and fantasy. A couple of recent profiles caught my eye that get into the nitty gritty of writing music to provide a sense of character, identification and place to a show. The first is about the composer of the score for LOST, Michael Giacchino in the New Yorker, and the second is about the composer of Battlestar Galactica and Caprica (and video game SOCOM 4), Bear McCreary. Good stuff. Profile of Michael Giacchino here: http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2010/05/17/100517fa_fact_ross
