Screen Music Connect - Monday 24th September

We're delighted to announce that Time+Space are official partners of 'Screen Music Connect 2018, hosted by the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors (BASCA)!

Screen Music Connect is a new event series set to explore and celebrate the richly diverse world of Screen Music – from Film and Television through to Video Games and Virtual Reality.

Screen Music Connect is aimed at the music production communities of all media industries – from pro, semi-pro and amateur composers though to producers, engineers, music supervisors and audio directors – plus fans of soundtracks and anyone with an interest in the evolution of screen music.

Screen Music Connect‘s inaugural event will take place on Monday 24th September at the Purcell Room, Southbank Centre, London.

The first sessions to be announced include: 

“WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE: CLASSICAL MUSIC AND SOUNDTRACKS”

"Our panel of leading industry figures discuss their musical world view of, and influence on the artistic and commercial intersection of ‘classical music’ and music for screen media, followed by an intimate live performance from composer and cellist, Philip Sheppard."

Speakers:

Jessica Curry – BAFTA Award-winning Composer (‘Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture’, ‘Dear Esther’) and Presenter of Classic FM’s ‘High Score’.

James Williams – Managing Director, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Darrell Alexander – Film, TV & Games Composer Agent, CEO of COOL Music Ltd and The Chamber Orchestra of London.

Philip Sheppard – Film and Game Composer, Virtuoso Cellist, member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (‘Detroit: Become Human’, David Bowie, UNKLE).

Chair: Jenny Nelson – Author of Classic FM’s ‘Saturday Night at the Movies’ book, former Executive Producer of‘High Score’ on Classic FM, trustee of the Cambridge Film Trust.

“THE STORY OF INTERACTIVE MUSIC – PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE”

" ‘Interactive music’ is a term now deeply embedded in videogame speak. Yet, thirty years ago it simply didn’t exist. We examine what interactive music is, where it came from and why – questions which in turn also lead us to the heart of the matter of the fundamental raison d’être of music in games – its role, purpose, identity and delivery. Further, was some of the interesting creativity of the early days of game music lost in the clamour for cinematic mimicry and why?"

Speakers:

Olivier Derivière – BAFTA Nominated Composer (‘11-11: Memories Retold’, ‘Get Even’).

James Hannigan – Creative Director of Screen Music Connect and Multi-Award Winning Composer.

Richard Jacques – Ivor Novello and BAFTA Nominated Composer (‘James Bond 007: Blood Stone’, ‘Mass Effect’).

Chair: John Broomhall – Composer, Music Artist (String Theory – ‘Modularity’) and Game Music Connect Co-Founder.

Further details of the day’s sessions and other distinguished guest speakers, including talks and panels dedicated to discussing ‘The Role of Music in Virtual Reality’, ‘Artificial Intelligence and Creativity’, and ‘Creative Partnerships in Film and Television’, will be announced shortly.
