Music is an important element in creating the proper mood for the video. For every video, I try to pick out pieces of music to set the tone of the video. Sometimes inspiration comes very easily, while other videos have been delayed because I can’t find the right music.
I had a very hard time figuring out what music I wanted to use for my prior video for Kkaenip pesto. My last resort for inspiration was posting a request for music ideas on my facebook page. One of my college friends came up with the idea of using parts of the soundtrack from the Italian opera Madame Butterfly as an accompaniment to the video. Since that recipe was a mix of Asia and Italy, the topic fit very well. I bought the soundtrack just to use it in the video. However, since it’s an opera, most of the music is lyrical. It was a challenge to find enough instrumental parts to piece together and fill up the video.
Although the Penne with Soju recipe is also a mix of Italy and Asia, I didn’t want to do Madame Butterfly part 2 but I had the same problem of finding inspiration. This time around, I checked out a couple of popular royalty-free sites to create a suitable soundtrack for this video.
Here are the sites where I found most of the music in the Soju Cream Sauce video.
