Polyphony and counterpoint in soundtracks!

Updated: Dec 31, 2021

First time I started to learn counterpoint and polyphony when I was a Music college student. It was exciting, but I treated this like old school...


Several weeks ago I started to work on an interesting film and some characters headed a storyline in a different location, but by the end merged with the main plot.


It took me a lot of time to understand how I can reflect that in music. So, I composed music themes for each of these characters, but how to show when they are merging with the main plot at the end of the film. I thought the best way to show the combination of all themes in one track is by composing the counterpoint of all themes...


So, in short, indeed it worked :)
