What You Should Know About Your Production Before You Add a Music Soundtrack
Too often choosing the right track from a music library is like hacking your way through overgrown jungle with no map and no sense of direction. It’s a time-intensive, hit-or-miss process that requires listening to multitudes of the wrong selections.
After a while your brain becomes numb and everything blends together and sounds the same. To further complicate things, you’re often searching for music right at the project deadline so there is pressure to find tracks fast.
The fastest way to find the right soundtrack for your work is to first identify the underlying feeling – the emotional thrust – of your production.
Many project creators only think about what STYLE of music they want (i.e. rock, Techno). A better way to proceed is to look for music based on the emotional character of your work.
