There is nothing I love more than film music.

Film music has shaped and influenced the very essence of my being, the rhythm by which my heart beats, since I was 12 years old. I have no musical training or knowledge, nor can I play an instrument. Yet I am fervently passionate about the orchestra, the massive body of instruments unified in the purpose of producing the most resonant, powerful music the world has ever known. I feel this way because, though I know nothing about music, I know what appeals to me. The complexity, the size, the sheer magnitude of the orchestra is my bread and butter, and I need and crave its power. With few exceptions, "normal" music has little effect on me. There is a quaint elegance in the "band" structure of music, and artists like The Who, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Alice In Chains, and a few fringe heavy metal artists hold a very special place in my heart. But none of them, and I mean not a one, can match the intensity or the emotion I feel at the sound of the orchestra. It makes me cry. I'm man enough to admit it.

Film music is the natural extension of the orchestra's power, since the orchestra's best friend is the notion that films require musical accompaniment. It is as simple as that.

And thank God for it.
