November 25th-December 1st: Sound of Silence

This week, we will enjoy another delightful video from the YouTube channel, AcousticTrench. Music has a huge role in underlining beauty in visuals. Things we see with our eyes are often enhanced by what we hear with it - imagine how the movie watching experience would be…without the music!
