Music can transform
fiction just like it
transforms our lives.

Creating a soundtrack for a movie is an art and those who do it to perfection are masters at conveying emotions.

We’ve all associated a piece of music to a specific movie or vice-versa, incapable of separating the two elements because of the sentiments their combination trigger. Often, a soundtrack is created at the end of the creative process with its sole purpose being to complement the movie; to beautify it.


Movies animated by music

In the movie CRAZY (2005), Patsy Cline’s song impeccably expresses the feelings of the protagonist, Zachary Beaulieu. Cline’s soulful ballad seems to be in perfect harmony with the moving role played by Marc-André Grondin. Plenty of movies wouldn’t have been the same without their soundtrack.

Recently, famous Québécois film director Jean-Marc Vallée surprised us once again with his brilliant selection for Sharp Objects (2018). The musical work played a crucial role in the series. From Led Zeppelin to the soothing pieces of pianist Alexandra Stréliski, every song transports you further into the intrigue. The richness of the musical compilation allows us to discover the intricacies of each character. Together, film and sound make up the most mesmerizing mix.


Inscape by Alexandra Stréliski

Alexandra Stréliski is a reference in the field of neoclassical music. Her art and profound cinematic references truly captivate and inspire her listeners. Growing up, Stréliski traveled back and forth between Paris and Montreal. Her work in Dallas Buyers Club (2013) and Demolition (2016), both produced by Jean-Marc Vallée, is what caught the world’s attention. The musician and composer recently launched her new album, Inscape.

“To me, Inscape was the product of an existential crisis,” admits Stréliski. “It was a trying year and I overcame so many emotional challenges – beautiful, exciting and painful at the same time.”

Sharp Objects (2018)

A picture is worth a thousand words. But what about a sound?

Like characters, a soundtrack can play a crucial role in a movie. In addition to conveying emotions, music can give a story, a voice and set a mood.

In many films and series, such as Sharp Objects, sound is a substantial element of the creative process. Director Jean-Marc Vallée uses music to illustrate his character’s emotions, creating the perfect blend between the two artistic forms. As a matter of fact, when Alan Crellin (Henry Czerny) wishes to escape his dull environment, he turns to music. What we hear is a true reflection of his emotional state. Music helps us understand and awakens compassion.

The audio system the character uses at that very moment is no other than a MOON system that includes the following devices:
