The Styles of Sad Music
Music is a great and complex language, which means that for every genre and style, there are lots of variations. And sad music is not an exception. There are different types and levels of sadness you can create and shape with your music. Let me give you some examples:
- Depressing Sadness
This style of sad music is like ‘Feeling Lost in Darkness’. Basically feeling extremely down and depressed, like there is no hope, and everything is just bad. A good example of this style is Mad World by Gary Jules
- Mellow Sadness
This style of sad music is also feeling down, but not as deeply as ‘depressed sadness’. More like having ‘one of those days’ where everything seems to be grey and boring, and perhaps lonely. A good example of this style is The Departure by Max Richter.
- Tragedy Sadness
This style of sad music is the most strong type of sadness. The type that makes your heart ache, and your tears flow. Like a loss of a loved one, or simply a sense of complete misery. A good example of this style is The Main Theme from Schindlers’ List.
- Hopeful Sadness
This style of sad music is like a feeling of hope in the dark. Like things are bad right now, but you sense a shimmer of hope. A good example of this style is Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley.
- Beautiful Sadness
This style of sad music is very emotional, and with a sad tone, but your tears are created from the sense of sheer beauty, not sorrow. It is based on a very strong and intense beautiful and sad tone. A good example of this style is the build-up and transition ending of One Day from Pirates of the Caribbean.
As a music composer, you have the amazing power to create the overall mood of your music, and shape the colors of it with harmony, expression, instrumentation, playing styles, and so much more. You are going to learn all of these ways during this course, so let’s continue your learning journey right now!
