Why Jurassic Park's Music is So Powerful

"John William's score for Jurassic Park contains some of the most iconic themes ever written for film. But although the music by itself is deeply affecting, the real power comes through the complex relationships we make with the music when it's paired with Spielberg's visuals. In this essay, I consider why the music for Jurassic Park is so powerful, and why it has stayed with us all of these years. Note: At 2:00 I say that the carnivore theme is played by a pan flute - it's actually played by a shakuhachi" from video introduction
