Choosing a composer like picking a member of the cast. Music is 50 percent of the impact. Just remove the music and see how the scene looks. Music tells the audience how to feel in a scene: scared, sad, happy, sexy, whatever. Sub-liminal cue to audience.
Try something different for your score, Paul Thomas Anderson’s “There Will Be Blood” starring Daniel Day Lewis features an original electronic and orchestral score by Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood. The film was inspired by Upton Sinclair’s novel “Oil” takes place early 20th century.
