Word Description
Temp Track (or Temp Music) Music added to a film or television project before the actual music is composed. Temp music is often added before screening the film to test audiences and film production executives. Getting involved in the selection of temp music can be helpful to the composer in understanding the music needs of the director, however some composers prefer not to be involved in the temp music selection process.
