The Musical Storyteller: Translating Worlds, Characters, and Emotions into Music
Composers are storytellers! Understanding how stories develop and grow, as well as how human emotions are processed and experienced are equally important to knowing how to manipulate notes into melodies! This book explores different tools for dissecting and understanding both stories and emotions in a more intimate and personal manner. The end goal is that, together, we can learn to not just write music for stories but to grow music organically from the very core of a story itself!
In the pages of this book, learn how to draw inspiration from story worlds, characters, and emotions for music entirely original to the story you are telling! Learn how tempo, rhythm, pitch, articulation, harmony, timbre, register, dynamics, and texture can all be used and manipulated as important tools for writing musical themes that don't just tell a story, but belong in the story itself!
