    On the occasion of the Assises de la Face et du Cou, which will bring together at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès de Cannes the greatest specialists in the senses of hearing, smell and taste, science opens itself to the general public. Laurent Perez Del Mar, doctor and composer of film music, honors us with a conference on the emotions generated by music in cinema.

    Music influences our emotions, it's obvious! Science has even demonstrated this through the use of functional MRI, which allows us to analyze the areas of the brain that are activated when we listen to music. Depending on the melody, sad or happy, the regions of the brain activated are different. We can thus easily understand how music transcends images and our emotions.

    Some film music is so associated with a scene that it is difficult to imagine it without it. Laurent Perez del Mar is a French composer known for his numerous film scores. He is mainly known for having composed the music for the film The Red Turtle, for which he received many awards around the world, or for The Henri Pick Mystery, which was nominated in several festivals.

    During this conference, he will explain the techniques used to find "the right music" for a film; how the tempo, the choice of sounds and the association with the images play an essential role in the genesis of the emotions that transport us and make us dream at the cinema.
