SCORING THE FUTURE: WRITING MUSIC FOR SCI-FI Coming to WonderCon 2017
A must attend panel at WonderCon is brought to us by Broadcast Music Inc. (BMI) and White Bear PR. This panel never fails to entertain and enlighten the audience on various aspects of music in the movies, television shows and video games we enjoy. In previous years the panelists had composers sharing stories of how the composers got started in the industry, inspirations for the music they compose, tips on working with the producers and/or directors, one panel even included a composer that uses some very unique instruments including a bone flute.
This year year looks to be just as promising as prior years with the Scoring the Future: Writing Music for Sci-Fi featuring composers Greg Edmonson (Firefly), Andrew Lockington (The Space Between Us), Heather McIntosh (Z for Zachariah) and Tree Adams (The 100).
Be sure to add this to your WonderCon plans by attending the Scoring the Future: Writing Music for Sci-Fi panel on Saturday, April 1, 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. in room 213.
