The 6th edition of the FIMUCITÉ Film Scoring Academy (FFSA), the FIMUCITÉ Academy for audiovisual composers, kicks off tomorrow, Monday, September 20. This is one of the most eagerly anticipated parallel activities of the Festival, which thrives each year in its commitment to specialist training in this field.
Coordinated by Pedro J. Mérida, FFSA offers this year three days of masterclasses geared towards students and professional musicians interested in music creation for audiovisual media as a professional alternative.
On Monday, the 20th of September, we will have the masterclass “Play the Game: The Sound Narrative of Music in Videogames”, where conductor and composer Eímear Noone will offer the keys for score creators to forge a path for themselves in a field ever more open to innovation and original ideas.
On Friday the 24th, Darío Palomo, Xavier Capellas, and Daniel Trujillo, three celebrated composers in the Spanish industry, will take part in the roundtable “Multidisciplinary Innovation”, moderated by Gorka Oteiza, founder and director of SoundTrackFest. Television, advertising, and the symphonic and electroacoustic genres will be up for debate in a conversation that will cover the mechanisms through which a composer can face an audiovisual commission with views to adding value to the project.
The program will conclude on Saturday, the 25th of September with the speech “Know the Past to Face the Future”, by Conrado Xalabarder (MundoBSO), who will offer a historical analysis of the evolution of the narrative discourse of music in the audiovisual field.
The inscription period for these training activities, which are free and will take place on the 20th, 24th, and 25th of September in Sala de Cámara del Teatro Leal, in La Laguna, closes on the 20th of September. Those who attend, can find the inscription form on the Festival website and will receive a diploma crediting their participation. All sessions, for which places are limited, will begin at 11:00am and will last approximately 2 hours.
SoundTrackFest is proud to collaborate with Fimucité once again, and moderate one of the conferences this year, participating in the Film Scoring Academy along with veteran and experimented industry professionals.
