Music in video is an art of its own that can make or break your story. This article explains some of the reasons why. Music is used to set the mood and manipulate emotions in movies, TV shows, news features and video stories and as a classically trained vocalist and TV storyteller, I always hear it. I don't like being told how to feel about something,but it can be highly effective. Think of the theme from Jaws (dum,dum,dum,dum DUM,DUM) and how it foreshadows the shark attacks - ominous and thrilling! It's a fun exercise to perk up your ears to the music used in media and notice how it plays on your emotions.

We are always trying to work out where the music or copywriting / story is heading, and enjoy the journey even if we're wrong. "There is pleasure even in being deceived."

Not strictly visualization... BUT very fascinating!

Yes but it's really possible and fascinating indeed.

I believe that we can think using kind of emotions and visualizations. Maybe it is a universal communication like we can have in dreams
