NYU/ASCAP Foundation Film Scoring Workshop in Memory of Buddy Baker Announced – Application Deadline April 1

Film Music Magazine • February 24, 2011

Following in the vision and legacy of Buddy Baker, the 2011 NYU/ASCAP Foundation Film Scoring Workshop will continue to present the rich traditions of classical Hollywood film scoring. Dedicated sessions will address the creative process, orchestrating, conducting, and MIDI mockups. Participants will choose a clip from a selection of rough cuts, representing a variety of genres.

The workshop will culminate in a full day of recording sessions, featuring New York City’s top-tier studio musicians. Previous workshops included players from the NY Philharmonic and The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, and have been recorded by such top flight engineers as Lawrence Manchester and Jim Anderson.

Participants leave with a professional digital demo of their work. The workshop continues to be taught by some of today’s most creative composers and orchestrators, this year spearheaded by Sean Calley (“24”). Summer core faculty member Mark Snow (X-Files/Bluebloods) and NYU Film Scoring faculty member Ira Newborn (Naked Gun series) will be featured. Other participating NYU faculty include Sonny Kompanek, Mike Patterson, David Spear, Mark Suozzo, Tim Starnes and Ron Sadoff.

For the benefit of auditors and participants, all faculty and participant interactions, lectures, and comments will be amplified and projected onto large screens. Auditors will attend all proceedings, including the live recording sessions and critiques. All sessions of the workshop will take place in the Frederick Loewe Theatre at New York University’s Steinhardt School.

For further information, contact Ron Sadoff at 212-998-5779 or ron.sadoff@nyu.edu.

Dates: May 24 – June 2, 2011
