Film Music
A film score (also sometimes called film music,
background music, or incidental music
) is original music written specifically to accompany a film. The score forms part of the
film's soundtrack
, which also usually includes
dialogue and sound effects
, and comprises a number of orchestral, instrumental or choral pieces called
which are timed to begin and end at specific points during the film in order to enhance the dramatic narrative and the emotional impact of the scene in question. Scores are written by one or more
, under the guidance of, or in collaboration with, the film's
, and are then usually performed by an
ensemble of musicians – most often comprising an orchestra or band, instrumental soloists, and choir or vocalists – and recorded by a sound engineer.

Film scores
encompass an enormous variety of styles of music, depending on the nature of the films they accompany. The majority of scores are
orchestral works rooted in Western classical music
, but a great number of scores also draw influence from
jazz, rock, pop, blues, new-age
and ambient music, and a wide range of ethnic and world music styles. Since the 1950s, a growing number of scores have also included
electronic elements
as part of the score, and many scores written today feature a
hybrid of orchestral and electronic instruments

Since the invention of
digital technology and audio sampling
, many low-budget films have been able to rely on digital samples to imitate the sound of live instruments, and many scores are created and performed wholly by the composers themselves, by using sophisticated
music composition software

Songs are usually not considered part of the film's score, although songs do also form part of the film's soundtrack. Although some songs, especially in
are based on thematic ideas from the score (or vice-versa), scores usually do not have lyrics, except for when sung by choirs or soloists as part of a cue. Similarly, pop songs which are
"needle dropped"
into a specific scene in film for added emphasis are not considered part of the score, although occasionally the score's composer will write an original pop song based on his themes, such as
James Horner's "My Heart Will Go On"
, written for
Celine Dion
