Sound and music for your videos

In this really cool video, you can find some ideas as to how to add sound effects to your movies.

We hope you like it!

In addition, we suggest you do some research to find the music composers that were popular during your artistic movement's period, and use some adequate music for your film!!
There are already some Youtube playlists among which you can find interesting proposals...
Expressionist composers
Dadaism inspired music
Surreal music (adequate for Dadaism)
Iannis Xenakis was considered one of promoders of the avant-garde's music. His compositions are very abstract, without a traditional musical structure, so they are adequate for Neoplasticism and Suprematism.
John Cage was also an stochastic musician, like Xenakis. Here you can read more about this type of music.
