Ep. 13: Movie Night – Classical Music in Film with Matthew Trygar (Night 1)

In today’s episode, I interview my brother Matthew Trygar who is an actor and a film maker. We’ll talk about why music is so important in movies, some reasons that film makers might use classical music rather than a pop or rock tune, and the aesthetic that classical music has when portrayed in the movies.
