Composing music for film, animation, and video games calls for a unique mix of art and science. Come explore the creative principles and software techniques used to support a story with music in this masterclass taught by industry veteran and award-winning composer, James Borchers. James' body of work spans a range of media including orchestral and chamber music, electroacoustic and computer music, sound installations, opera, film scores, and music for theater. With his guidance and mentorship, you will compose an original score synchronized to picture, then participate in a live studio recording session with a chamber ensemble to produce your finished soundtrack.
You will learn:
Students must have access to a computer as well as additional hardware and software. Some programs or courses may indicate additional technology requirements, and not all programs are Mac compatible.
Please note that in order to ensure that students have their home computers set up correctly for the class, and to orientate students to learning in an online environment, there will be a 30-minute scheduled orientation session that will run the week before the workshop is scheduled to start. Information about this will be sent to students by the instructor the week before the start of the workshop.
