Sound Analyisis- Dexter

Non-Digetic and Incedental music helps the reader create a mood, it also suggests the genre and sub-genre it is. it keeps the same bassline through out with other sounds going over the top of the bassline. The incidental music adds to the mystery amd the msuics ironic because the title sequence is dark when the Music is Quite Happy.

The folly sounds and digetic sounds help to create tension. For example splitting the egg and cutting the meat raises in volume when blood hits the sink a small high pitch bell sound happens with important movement to grab the viewers attention.
