The unmistakable sound of East Indian vocal music — you wouldn't think anything this exotic would be from the soundtrack to a major motion picture. But these days, music from around the world plays an increasing role in film scores, while the classic orchestral score has taken on new dimensions and influences.
Over the years we've devoted a series of programs to film music. Just as today's Ambient music creates a background for our lives, the original function of film music was to create an ambient background for the story — which is why it was called the "underscore."
Today you'll find some of the most talented musicians and composers working in film music. The budgets are relatively large, and the quality of the writing and the recording is unsurpassed.
On this transmission of Hearts of Space, produced with help from Austin film music composer and radio host BRIAN SATTERWHITE (who provided a large film music library for us to work with) we return to the increasingly exotic world of contemporary film music, on a program called UNDERSCORE 2.
