If by "The evolution of film music" you mean, the second time computers will try and steal jobs from musicians...then yes, we are in the upswing of another generation of electronic music, Techno 2.0 scores. However, in years to come they will not be the monolithic splash in the ocean of film scorers who can weave and wield an orchestra like a blunt weapon to the likes of Williams, Silvestri, Debney, Elfman, Howard, Shore,. Electronic music will swing up, and then swing back down only to remembered as a fleeting fad and always looked at with fond memories like "The Beverly Hills Cop Theme". Orchestras and people will live on...!/album/The+Mummy/2131676
