Specialty Music is meant to be different, to add a dimension of the unusual, unreal or surreal as it snaps, crackles and pops with musical fireworks. Specialty Music is often riddled with special effects or instrumentation not generally heard in pop, contemporary, disco, Western or other forms of music. Consider the use of cellos, xylophones, synths and soaring strings which all add richness to a soundtrack not found with classical piano or acoustic guitar.
Environmental Sound Effects
Sound effects, or ambient sounds, are in many of the scenes you watch. Sound effects create mood, tone, emotion and feeling, or give sound to an action. Music can only take a scene so far; add sound effects and create a legit beach scene with crashing waves or a subway scene with the jarring, screeching sounds of the sub’s brakes. Albums with a diverse collection of sound effects, ambient sounds and environmental sounds are always used for scenes at events, in retail stores and crowded areas, at parties, in fight scenes and battles; there are even sound effects for a kiss, a slap and a laugh, though no one’s bottled the sounds of silence yet.
Soft Wedding Music beckons listeners with intimate, sweet, serene and sometimes simple compositions and is a must for creating beautiful and moving compositions which linger in the listener’s mind. Though many wedding dances are all about kicking up the heels and rocking the dance floor, soft wedding music balances out the revelry and reminds guests of the tenderness and intimacy of the occasion.
Queue the Music

But make no mistake, The Magnificent Seven, Dances with Wolves and Silverado all had fan-winning, memorable western music scores that remain unforgettable and unmistakable. A great Western film score adds a musical flavor to the production that puts your audience in the action.
