Movie Soundtracks

The movie soundtrack for the 1937 Walt Disney animated film “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” was the first commercially released soundtrack. It was released by RCA Victor Records in January 1938 on multiple 78 RPM discs as songs in Walt Disney’s “Snow White” and “Seven Dwarfs” (with the same characters and sound effects as “That Movie”) Since then, it has undergone numerous expansions and reissues. The best movie soundtracks don’t just provide “good music,” they take on a life of their own.

Movie and Television Soundtracks

When a blockbuster film is released, or during or after a TV series, the album is usually released in the form of a soundtrack. The soundtrack usually contains musical instruments or movie soundtracks. But it can also play songs sung or performed by characters in the scene (or reprints of songs in the media, re-recorded by pop singers), and songs used as background music, intentionally or unintentionally, in important scenes. Songs heard in the closing film Songs, or songs that have no obvious reasons related to the media other than the promotion, are included in the soundtrack.

Video Game Soundtracks

Soundtrack can also refer to music used in video games. Although sound effects are almost universally used for actions in games, music accompanied by gameplay is a later development. Rob Hubbard and Martin Galway were both early composers of music, specializing in making video games for the Commodore 64 computer in the 1980s. Koji Kondo was an important early composer of Nintendo games. As technology progressed, starting in the late 1980s, polyphonic and usually orchestral soundtracks replaced simple monophonic melody, and soundtracks for popular games such as Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy began to be released separately.

Book Soundtracks

There are only a few cases where a complete soundtrack has been written specifically for the book. The Black Piper wrote “Kaladin”, the soundtrack of the book “The Way of Kings” by the popular fantasy novelist Brandon Sanderson. Black Piper from Provo, Utah is made up of composers who love fantasy literature. “Kaladin” was funded by Kickstarter and raised more than $112,000. It was released in December 2017. Craig Russell composed J. R. R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” and “Lord of the Rings” soundtrack for the San Luis Obispo Youth Symphony Orchestra. The San Luis Obispo Symphony was put into use in 1995 and finally put it on disk in 2000.
