For 2014 Mumbai Composers Lab presents a series of seminars moderated by Lab Director Andrew T. Mackay under the banner of Music In Film: The Creative & The Business. The Lab is presented by Bohemia Junction Limited and Abbey Road Studios in association with PRS for Music, UK with support from BMI and FAMES Project.
This year we have a great selection of guests and a variety of subjects that we are covering. We are doing things slightly differently to last year. There will be no composing but instead a host of seminars and panels. The seminars are aimed at music composers, engineers, producers and directors as well as delegates and filmmakers from the film festival.
Recording with an Orchestra; a one to one with Laurent Koppitz head of FAME'S Project. The new 'go to' home for film score orchestral recording in Skopje, Macedonia. Bollywood scores such as Dhoom 3 have been recorded there as well as many award-winning Hollywood & European film scores. This is a great opportunity for music directors and film company heads to see what opportunities there are to add another dimension to their film songs and film scores.
The Sound Engineer: A conversation with a panel of leading Sound Engineers working in the film industry in Mumbai. The panel will feature Yash Raj engineer Vijay Dayal who is one of the top engineers in the country responsible for some of the biggest hit songs and scores coming out of the film industry in India. A must for sound engineers and anyone with an interest in the recording studio!
Copyright, Publishing & Collection! How it works and what it means to composers & songwriters. Liam Donnelly, Head of International for PRS for Music and leading music industry veteran Atul Churamani discuss the ins and outs of the often confusing subject.
The Composer: Who is he or she and what do they really do? A chat with some of Indian cinemas established and up coming composers. A panel of five special guests will grace the stage! More details coming soon.
Where are they now? A round table chat with 2013's lab participants. Did they learn really anything and where are they now in their careers?
A full list of guests, times and venues will be announced shortly. The seminars are on 17th October in Andheri (w). More information can be found at www.ComposersLab.in
The Seminars will be open to all Festival Delegates and those that register their details at registrations@ComposersLab.in
