Music has the power to haunt the soul. With the right tone and vocal accompaniment, this feeling can be achieved with evoking effect. One such composer is masterful at this, which is why his music brings a lasting quality to the films that he writes music for, in my opinion.

May this wield your emotions as you tackle those words today!
