Changing music moves the mood

In my last post I talked about how music is integral to the mood of your video slideshow and how I use music in my creation process. I have made several multi chapter life story videos and I used the music selections to transport the viewers’ emotions up and down through the show.

Last week I made a video and I was able to do the same thing within one video that was less than 2 minutes long. This was possible because the music piece itself contained differing moods. You’ll see in the show below that the overall mood was very playful yet I was able to get some reflective moments, too.

When you are choosing music for a video slideshow, consider how a piece of music can provide different emotions. This could be done with different tempos (speed), volumes or just with different instrumentation.
