to:

* ''Series/TheOuterLimits1995'': Given its premise, the FoundFootage episode "Manifest Destiny" features no music (discounting the opening and closing credits).


* Creator/JanSvankmajer's ''Film/{{Alice}}'' lacks any background music, aside from a piece of music played over the end credits. If anything, the sound effects (such as Alice sucking her finger or scraping knives) are exaggerated and sound quite loud.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/ThePanicInNeedlePark'', a 1971 film about heroin addicts done in cinema verite style, shot on location, has no soundtrack and no incidental music.



to:

* ''Film/NoCountryForOldMen'', except in the credits and one scene in the movie, uses no background music, which adds to the tension felt throughout the film.

Added DiffLines:

[[folder: Anime ]]

* For the most part, the real life sequences in ''Net-Juu No Susume'' have no background music aside from joke scenes. This is in comparison with the lively MMO sequences and is used to show how lonely the protagonist's life is.

to:

* Despite having several orchestral scores listed in its soundtrack, ''VideoGame/BrothersInArms'' does not have any background music. All of these themes instead play during either the main menu or during title sequences, but never in the levels themselves.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheFloridaProject'' is, with the exception of its final scene, entirely scoreless.

to:

* Save for the credits, ''Film/{{Sully}}'' has no soundtrack, which only enhances the NothingIsScarier atmosphere after the engines fail.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/TheMarxBrothers first film ''Film/TheCocoanuts'' is a perfect example of that. The brothers figured that the audience wouldn't care where the music came from but the executives insisted that film audiences wouldn't suspend their disbelief, so they hired an orchestra to sit on the set in order to justify the musical numbers (even though they were using prerecorded music) - but the director forgot to shoot them and almost all the musical numbers were cut anyway, so the studio wasted that money.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/FailSafe'' was intended to contain a score, but this was left out. This just adds to the ominous nature of the film.


* ''Film/OneOfOurAircraftIsMissing'' contains no musical score. Director Michael Powell strove for "naturalism" and only used diegetic sounds.

* ''Series/{{MASH}}'' started out using musical scores throughout each episode, like most sitcoms of the era, but starting in the second season on it was gradually phased out, reserved for lengthy comedic sequences and before and after commercial breaks. By season eight, the background music was gone entirely. According to Burt Metcalf, it was removed to be "just like the actual Korean War". Likewise, the CannedLaughter forced by the network was scaled back as the series wore on, ultimately being absent in the finale.
