NEXT MEETING; TUESDAY FEBRUARY 5, 2019
10:00 AM – 1:00 PM
BEST SCORED SCENE; We all have a favourite scored scene from a movie or TV show that we thought was brilliant. In an extended “Clip of the Month” we want everyone to bring their pick for “Best Scored Scene”, and be prepared to defend their choice – a bit like “Canada Reads” on CBC. It can be an genre, any decade, any instrumentation. It can be originally scored or licensed (e.g. 2001 A Space Oddessy”).
If possible, bring your clip on a thumb drive. If that isn’t possible, bring a link to an online file (YouTube, etc.) and we can stream it. We may need to time-limit the presentations depending on the number of entries.
*GUEST STUDY LEADER; Brigham Phillips will be leading the introduction to “Jupiter”. Brigham is a trumpet player and pianist and music director for singer John McDermott. He is also a composer and arranger, and leads the Brigham Phillips Big Band. Brigham is also a long-time Ravel supporter.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE A GUEST STUDY LEADER, please contact John at; email@example.com.
NEW ADVENTURES IN LISTENING – Film clips from “On The Waterfront” and “Ryan” are posted on the “Study Materials” page for download. With the sound removed, they can be scored as an exercise, and brough in to “Adventures in Listening” for feedback and analysis. Adventures in Listening is a unique opportunity to get unbiased and honest feedback on your ‘in-progress’ or experimental work from a community of your professional peers. Because it is anonymous, it is a risk-free environment. Whether you are an emerging composer or an experienced one, and whether your work is for concert or screen, I encourage you to take advantage of this invaluable resource.
