Early bird tickets are available for £60 until 1st of August and the event is being held on 24th of September at the newly-furbished Purcell Room within the Southbank Centre in London.
James Hannigan says: “I’m tremendously excited to announce this new event series, which is designed to spotlight and engage the creative talent working in all forms of screen music as well as appealing to those fascinated by today’s cutting-edge soundtracks, the aesthetics and history of screen music and its cultural significance.”
Screen music connect will open with a keynote from Vick Bain (BASCA) and the day’s programming will comprise interviews, case studies and round table discussions with a leading line-up of media composers and multi-industry practitioners on a variety of subjects including soundtracks and classical music, creative collaboration in film and television, artificial intelligence-generated music and cutting-edge video game composition.Full details of the day’s sessions and other guest speakers will be announced soon.
The event welcomes people from all over the media industries- from pro, semi pro and amateur composers to producers, engineers, music supervisors, audio directors and production managers- plus fans of soundtracks and anyone with an interest in the evolution of screen music.
