As I saw with the two soundtracks I investigated, and with the two I created, music is definitely a very effective tool in conveying emotion to the viewer, but I also discovered something that I had not anticipated. It is possible for the filmmaker to make us feel what they want to about a certain character or event through the music used, even if it is in contrast with what we are seeing on the screen. This gives the filmmaker another whole dimension to work with while crafting their work, even if it is not consciously noticed by the audience in most cases.
