  • Bernard Herrmann was not only responsible for completely changing the face of film soundtracks, he also had his finger on the pulse of contemporary classical music. His innovative, brilliantly conceived soundtracks from the 1950s and '60s often employed structural rhythmic patterns, repetitions, and melodic theme and variation in evocative, minimal ways, and as such, have much in common with the music of Phillip Glass and Steve Reich. Like all his best work, PSYCHO stands as a unique, absorbing musical experience.
  • Before Herrmann, film music was often overpowering and melodramatic; it told the audience what to feel, rather than creating an atmospheric subtext to complement the images. The PSYCHO score, with a few exceptions (namely the piercing, avant violin attack of "The Murder," which cues the famed shower scene), is understated, using dynamic tension and subtle instrumental interplay to create incredible tension. The string section carries most of the weight, with violins and cellos surging and playing pizzicato; veering from lush orchestral calm ("The City") to unsettling abstract movements ("The Peephole"). In writing for Hitchcock's brilliant, deeply disturbing film of psychological horror, Herrmann created one of his finest scores: a masterpiece for a masterpiece.
