FILM & MUSIC – A FUSION FOR THE SENSES
An exciting unique new course (six Tuesdays, August 23 – September 27) aimed at the general public (as well as filmmakers) on film music will feature some of Australia’s leading composers: (in appearance order) David Hirschfelder, Lisa Gerrard, Christopher Gordon, Burkhard Dallwitz, Nerida Tyson-Chew and Guy Gross.
The course is presented by Sydney University’s Centre for Continuing Education in association with the Australian Performing Rights Association (APRA), hosted by Andrew L. Urban.
Music is arguably the most visceral of artforms, instantly touching our senses; when combined with the moving image it’s a powerful force that provides emotional connection to the images. This series of conversations and clips explores the creation of screen music through both established and exciting new screen composers with selected examples of their works, expanded with commentary and discussion.
"the most visceral of artforms"
Each session comprises film clips introduced by a screen composer who will explain his/her creative and logistical processes. An open discussion follows, led by Urban with participants encouraged to ask questions and make relevant comments.
"will explain his/her creative and logistical processes"
The course will be held from 6.30 – 8.30 at the APRA screening room at 16 Mountain Street, Ultimo, Sydney; cost $198, includes complimentary drinks and nibbles following each session.
