Film Scoring/Creating the sound of fear:Protégé
The Sound of Fear
Some musical sounds automatically create the sound of fear. The most common musical instrument sound which creates the sound of fear is the violin trill.
A trill is a special musical sound created with bowed instruments such as a violin. Most filmmakers cannot play a trill on a violin. Not in a million years.
Yet with Jam Pack:Symphony Orchestra, all a filmmaker need do is press one key on the keyboard to get a wonderfully realistic trill sound. For filmmakers with no musical talent, this is a miracle. Using the software instruments in the Macintosh computer, a filmmaker can create fantasitc sounds for motion pictures.
Just playing a violin trill is not enough. When you play a violin trill with GarageBand, the trill turns on and then turns off. This is not realistic. To make the trill seem realistic, you must adjust the volume of the sound so it fades in and fades out. That is simple!
This entire process is fast. Super fast! Once you have found the correct musical instrument to create the mood you want and after you have adjusted the volume of the note, you are done. How easy can it get!!!
