Why do you call your music Cinematic Sounds?
A look at why I call my moody instrumental music Cinematic Sounds.
by TaurusBeats (Taurus James)
Cinematic Sounds is what I came up with when trying to describe my music. I was having a hard time with categorizing the tracks within the standard music genres.
So, I decided to step away from the genres and use my own description. Cinematic Sounds fits the tracks because the sounds themselves spark the listener's imagination with imagery. I've played some of my tracks for friends and the first thing they all said was, 'I see...'
When I listen to my music, I see imagery, whether it's picturing something happening as the song plays, or seeing myself somewhere doing something other than just listening. My music sparks imagery. Plus, my goal is to one day have my music featured in films and video games - playing more to the cinematic aspect of those industries.
It's interesting to note that I don't have an image in my head when I create the tracks. The images only come after I listen to the finished product.
