Film Scoring 101 – The Lydian Mode

Film Scoring 101 – The Lydian Mode

In this episode of Everything Music we discuss the most popular mode used in modern film scoring, the Lydian Mode. I show how composers from John Williams to James Horner to Thomas Newman use one of their favorite scales to create these other worldly, triumphant sounds. The Lydian mode is the 4th mode of the major scale or a major scale with a raised 4th. For example:

1 2 3 #4 5 6 7 or in the key of C Lydian C D E F# G A B

This scale is also used by jazz musicians but I will get into that in my part 2 of the Lydian mode.
