Here’s the debut of a regular feature here at MusicForMedia – examples of effective music in multimedia storytelling.
In Left Behind, note the spacey instrumentation and desolate, wintry feel. The music seemless blends with ambient audio.
The Chance To Break Free, on the other hand, features simple piano tinkling in a minor key.
Most importantly, both projects’ music underscores the story. It helps, rather than detracts. And that’s what makes for effective use of music.
