FIMUCITÉ 14 - Fimucité Film Scoring Academy


The activities of the Film Scoring Academy, coordinated by Pedro J. Mérida, will be the following (free of charge):

Friday 25/9 at 16:00h – “The shielding of the symphonic umbrella” with Dario Palomo & Juan José Solana

  • Venue: Main Auditorium of the Teatro Leal de La Laguna
  • Description: “Being a composer does not only mean being an artist. Being a professional in a creative branch in the audiovisual world also means knowing how to surround yourself with a great team of collaborators and managers who ensure the stability of the project. Dario Palomo, President of Musimagen and Juan José Solana, President of the SGAE Foundation, will give a masterclass that will discuss how the artist must also become a producer and an entrepreneur if he/she wants to make his/her way in the industry. The ability to select a great artistic and legal team to help structure the creative process of the composer will be discussed in detail here”.


Saturday 26/9 at 11:30h – “Sound architecture in the television environment” with Manel Santisteban & Iván Martínez Lacámara moderated by Gorka Oteiza

  • Venue: Teatro Leal de La Laguna
  • Description: “The creators of the original music of ‘Money Heist’ make up one of the most prolific creative tandems in current television production. During the course of their masterclass they will indicate how the couple manages the organization of their countless commissions to ensure that each project is musically characterized by distinctive nuances that give a sonic personality to projects such as “Vis a vis”, “El embarcadero” or the upcoming “Sky Rojo”. Team creativity and what it means to make compatible a great amount of projects at the same time, each one with its specific production times, will be key aspects of this masterclass”.


Saturday 26/9 at 15:30h – “Musical dialects and languages. Variations according to genres.” With Xavier Capellas & Vicente Miras Pascual moderated by Gorka Oteiza

  • Venue: Teatro Leal de La Laguna
  • Description: “The closing of the Film Scoring Academy at this year’s FIMUCITÉ brings together two authors with extensive careers who, under the guidance of Gorka Oteiza (founder of website SoundTrackFest), who will discuss the different forms of musical expression in the areas of sound in which each of them works and for which they have been awarded in this year’s edition of the Spanish Audiovisual Music Awards, respectively, for Best Electroacoustic Music and Best Music for Advertising. In this way, we will delve into the contraposition of sound worlds and how this determines the articulation of musical languages in each specific case”.


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.
