At TED2005, James Horner gave a talk on composing film scores — an unusual art form where one artist works in service of another’s vision. Horner died on June 22, 2015, and while TED has never been able to share his full 15-minute talk because it contains film clips that require rights clearance, they were able to share this portion of it.
