Twofold; both the composition of a film's musical score, and the recording thereof. A composer 'scores' a film by writing the music themes and cues, a recording engineer/producer 'scores' the film in recording and mixing such music.
The final act in the creation of a CD or other recorded music project, in which disparate mixes or other elements are brought into the same sonic universe by an engineer using precision tools.
The well-known but little understood art of pitches and tempos moving in time. Capable of creating great emotions. We write it, record it, mix it and master it.
The art of designing the mood and aura of a film's soundtrack, to give the whole movie a cohesive sound atmosphere. Often starts before a movie is put into production.
Short for Sound Effects. The sound elements in a film's soundtrack that enhance what you see on screen, either to make it real or to fill in for weak production sound elements.
The art of replacing or adding to production sound effects, for greater dramatic impact, in a film's Effects Stem. Named after the original artist Jack Foley.
Remixing all the audio elements of a film into three 5.1 surround 'stems'-Dialog, Music and Effects-then combining those stems into the six-channel final mix.
Automated Dialog Replacement: The practice of replacing production dialog with new dialog recorded in a studio. Sometimes done for technical reasons, sometimes for artistic.
