How do film-makers manipulate our emotions with music?

BBC Arts & Culture has an article with the above title which cites a couple of music cognition studies.  The BBC is currently airing a program called  Sound of Cinema:  The Music that Made the Movies which you can watch if you happen to live in the appropriate country (or if you use a VPN service–not advocating its use, just mentioning that it’s a possibility).

As for me, my usual approach to overwhelming movie music is to turn down the sound (or, if I’m in a theater, to plug my ears).
