What makes a film score unforgettable? How did composers develop some of the most iconic scores in movie history? This documentary offers an inside look at the work of Hollywood’s most accomplished composers, including John Williams, Quincy Jones, Bill Conti, and Trent Reznor, and how they design and assemble the music that elicits powerful emotions from movie audiences. With a mix of archival material, film clips, and fascinating interviews with more than three dozen composers, studio musicians, agents and music executives, scientists and historians, Score explores the evolution of sound and the power and influence of the music behind the movies in ways you’ve never imagined. 

The screening will be followed by a discussion with Ashland composer Joby Talbot (Sing) 
 


Director’s Statement: Matt Schrader 

Goosebumps. In more ways than one, this film was born from them. Like many a cinephile, I remember the stirring rhythms of The Good The Bad and The Ugly and the spine-tingling orchestral finale of E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. These are moments where, almost inexplicably, we as viewers transcend the story we’re being told. The music speaks to us in ways we can’t intellectually grasp—but in ways our heart still can. These moments prove that the right picture paired with the right sound can create a physical change in our heartbeats, our tear ducts, even our arms and legs. They create chills. Cold shivers. Goosebumps.
