If you’re looking around for something to watch this Sunday evening that complements the Oscars, the World Science Festival has a great video which features the Coen Brothers, film composer Carter Burwell, Alec Baldwin, and neuroscientist Aniruddh Patel discussing the emotional effects and role of music in film. The discussion is a great look into why music is such an essential part of films and the ways in which it affects our viewing experience.

Check out the video The Art of the Score: The Mind, Music, and Moving Images by the World Science Festival.
