THE ART OF MUSIC’s |Sounds like Music|: Film/TV/Gaming Mixer with premier sound-composer Diego Stocco

 THE ART OF MUSIC’s |Sounds like Music|
brought to you by RapidShare

Sunday March 25, 2012   6-9pm

The Art of Music is a groundbreaking series presenting criminally overlooked specialty music for film, TV, video game and other media.  It gives music supervisors, film composers, film directors, game designers and other media professionals a unique chance to explore niche music style, discover upcoming projects and stay ahead of the curve.  Each The Art of Music showcase features musical masters performing genres that are generally under the radar, but are nevertheless lend themselves to adding more depth and persona to video-based projects. Spotlights on lesser known Cuban, Mexican and Chinese music genres; Delta and pre-depression blues; and 1930’s period music are just some of what you can expect from this lively series, which occurs three times a year at the Bleicher Art Gallery in Santa Monica.

March 25’s |Sounds like Music| will showcase approaches to scoring that fschallenge your sense of what’s possible.  Featured artists include premiere sound composer Diego Stocco, who has scored on Sherlock Holmes, two Assassin’s Creed releases and the ubiquitous and award-winning Spectrasonics sound library, which is used by almost every post production studio on the planet.  Diego will offer a rare glimpse behind the curtain to explain techniques he uses to create his unique “musical sounds”.
Equally fascinating are the sublime soundpoems of composer Nat Evans, who will be sharing a special performance synchronized to the sunset at 7:14pm. Nat’s soundscapes are like extremely artful musical reveries, blending the very best of real instruments, natural sounds and processing effects to create an artform that is in a league of its own.  These very special “master classes” will be specifically catered to professionals who already know most sound design tricks and are interested in exploring new approaches to the craft.

This event is a MUST for anyone with an interest in adventurous scoring and placement for film, TV, video games, web content and apps.

Beyond the showcases, attendees get a free music bundle courtesy of RapidShare, which includes dozens of tracks -- all unreleased and clearance-ready. Attendees will also get a copy of the |Sounds like Music| handbook with industry contact info and resources, plus a chance to win raffle prizes including a free copy of the new Film and TV Music Guide, a mobile apps for music and sound design production and more.
