You may be working on background scores, original soundtracks and different kinds of sound effects, including the work that an artist does which is reproducing organic sound of the world we live in or the environment that is depicted in a given scene. Any of these tasks would need you to edit or replace audio in video. You may have to mix different audio tracks to have one score.
