NEXT MEETING; TUESDAY MAY 7, 2019
10:00 AM – 1:00 PM
COMPOSING FOR PRODUCTION MUSIC LIBRARIES; Michael Reinmuller returns to Toronto Ravel to talk about what has become a significant source of revenue for many screen composers. However, with the proliferation of music libraries, disparate and sometimes exploitive business models, and a staggering amount of music available for licensing, getting one’s music to be heard and placed is becoming more and more difficult. Michael will share his experience both on the composing side (i.e. creating music that will stand out) and the business side (i.e. how to place music effectively and strategically).
Michael Reinmuller Born in Austria and Toronto-based, Michael has been in the music business as a composer, author, Warner Bros. solo artist and studio producer since 1974. He is also the founder of OffOffIndie, an independent music label dedicated to the nurturing and development of great indie talent. For more information, go to http://www.offoffindie.com
*GUEST STUDY LEADER; Amin Bhatia will be leading the introduction to “Saturn – Bringer of Old Age”. Amin is a highly successful composer and together with longtime friend and collaborator Ari Posner shares a Canadian Screen Award for their work on Flashpoint, and an Emmy nomination for the Disney series Get Ed.

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.
