Music supervisors suggest songs as possibilities for needle drops in TV shows. It’s a job that requires a broad knowledge of music, an intimate understanding of the show and its characters, and a great deal of self-awareness. Here’s more from The Ethan Hein Blog:
It seems like being a music supervisor would be an easy job (choosing the music, anyway; negotiating the licenses doesn’t seem easy at all). But it is hard to get it exactly right, because songs have to work on so many different levels at once. Any piece of recorded music comes tangled in a dense web of signifiers and associations, most of which act on us unconsciously. One common trap is for music supervisors to project their own excellent taste onto characters who are unlikely to be as cool as they are.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
