‘Succession’ Composer Breaks Down His Scoring Process in ‘Moonlight,’ ‘The King’ & More


  1. Appreciate his persistence in dispelling the Major=Happy/Minor=Sad myth. It really is an oversimplified way of looking at it and Iโ€™ve always felt that even someone who doesnโ€™t study music could and should be able to understand that itโ€™s way more about the relationships between chords that create a much larger variety of emotions.

  2. I saw moonlight and I clicked . Movie was done and one of my favourite souls hello stranger was in it ๐Ÿฅต๐Ÿฅต๐Ÿฅต

  3. Oh so we're doing The King spoilers as well? Since there's no mention of that movie in the title I assumed the warning only pertained to Moonlight!

  4. This guy, whom I have never before heard of, just sat down with a piano and made me want watch three great movies. And I think that I find these movies great more so because of the music.

  5. literally one of my all time favorite movie scores of all time especially the haunting violin solo during Middle of the World. amazing work ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. This is outstanding. I had a channel years ago on breaking down musicians processes. But today I like analyzing the charm of people.

  7. i like that he is generous in sharing the thought and education behind (his) music (and also very eloquent at breaking it all down). artists can often be so stingy about their art, but i think generosity serves us all best so we can learn to create more humane beauty! bravo nicholas!

  8. that last bit of music was the only mention of Beale Street in the whole video ๐Ÿ˜ญ the score paired with the camerawork in the beginning of that film go so perfectly with each other. made me tear up out of pure beauty!

  9. part of why i loved moonlight was the one motif that played throughout and repeated itself in every one of the other individual scores.
