Orson Welles: The real function of music

Orson Welles

Boscutti - Orson Welles - Writer Producer Director Actor Orson Welles and Composer Bernard Herrmann

Orson Welles believes film music has a certain mystical quality.

The camera can only do so much, the actors and the direction can only do so much. But the music can tell you what people are thinking and feeling. That is the real function of music.

That is how you create the color.
