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.
