Boy finds out something happened to music which makes it all
sound wrong. He goes on a journy and is joined by an old man and
a beautiful young girl. All along the background music never fits

from their master, but not yet attained mastery themselves.
Hence they journey, to expand their experience. It's a late-

descriptions of the plots of films.
||Using the wrong music is quite a powerful effect when used sparingly (see Reservoir Dogs*), but I'm not sure that it is sustainable for a whole film. Could be a nice experimental piece though.
* I stole this idea for the ending of one of my D&D campaigns. A city in flames, the Tarrasque running riot & the PCs sailing away to safety whilst all about them was a smoking ruin. Like most D&D campaigns, we never actually got to my carefully planned ending, but I was going to play the linked piece of music by Kevin Brown as the outro.
