Wikipedia says; Trailer Music is “(a subset of Production Music) is the background music used for film previews, which is not always from the film’s soundtrack. The purpose of this music is to complement, support and integrate the sales messaging of the mini-movie that is a film trailer…”
Though this definition is correct it really says nothing about what Trailer Music really sounds like and what genres Trailer Music can cover. Trailer Music fits in to 4 categories Comedic Funny, Comedic Romantic, Drama Intense and Drama Romantic. Basically boils down to the ancient Greek theater comedy and drama (tragedy).
Trailer Music tracks are typically used in Movie Trailers but can also be used in TV Promos. This genre of music can range from Heavy Rock/ Orchestral Hybrid Rock to Orchestral, Comedy, Kitsch or Ambient. If the movie is an Action movie the music is usually used to create building suspense, if the movie is a Love Story the music is usually lite and romantic,
