When curated and composed properly, a movie’s soundtrack can enrich a viewing experience like no other aural or visual technique. Music can deepen our empathy with a character, support the narrative, heighten pivotal sequences, and illuminate the film’s subtleties — we can become aware of the feelings and themes unaddressed in the dialogue. Obviously, a soundtrack plays a critical role in musicals, which rely on the movie’s musical numbers to further immerse us in the onscreen world. A musical’s soundtrack has the potential to dominate both the film and music industry.
