Music helps me create. Much of that music comes from movie soundtracks. I used to have complete silence while I was writing but in my household that didn't last long. If I try to listen to music with lyrics I get lost in the music and lose track of what I'm writing. So instrumentals and soundtracks have become favorites when I'm creating. Here's a few of my favorites: Jane Eyre (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) by Jack Liedbeck and Dario Marianelli (2011) Soundtrack, War Horse soundtrack by John Williams (2011), Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows by Hans Zimmer (2011).
When they showed the pictures of the many artists we lost this past year, one of them ( I missed who) said, "I'D LIKE TO THANK THE MOVIES." Me too.
What did you like about the Oscars? Got a favorite movie? Soundtrack?
