Scoring for a scene, changing tempo

Recommended Posts

Hi Friends,


I am a newbie composer, I am composing music for a trailer of a film of around 2.5 mins. I have composed a theme of one bar, which needs to run in the entire score. When I started I composed with tempo 64 BMP and the score mapped to film perfectly. Now I realized the tempo is bit slow, and feel needs to be tempo to be 72 to sound better. Now while I am tring to change the arrangement with this tempo, I am not very happy since the score is not perfectly matching to the scenes and the emotions I wrote it .


I am in a dilemma now, how to go ahead on this. Any suggestions will be highly helpful.

Tempo changes are your best friend during scoring to picture! Even if it's within the same cue. Often times whether I'm scoring a film or a trailer, I will use tempo changes like crazy if needed to make sure I'm with the picture / scene still. Even if it's not massive tempo jumps, if going from 64 bpm to something higher as @sonsofnarcissus said above, then definitely do it!
