Composing the Score for “The Hiding Place”

Think back to one of your favorite movies. Whatever it is, you might first remember the actors or some of the dialogue. You might also remember the theme music that allowed you to feel the highs and lows, the heart-racing pace of a chase sequence or the melodramatic slowness of an emotional scene.

When done well, music can make a story move us in ways we didn’t expect.

This is certainly true for The Hiding Place Radio Drama. The script, the actors, and the sound effects move the story along. But it is the music that makes you feel like you’ve gone back in time to World War II Holland.
