Program Description & Faculty

2016 NYU/ASCAP Foundation Film Scoring Workshops

In memory of Buddy Baker, the NYU/ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop will immerse participants in both classical Hollywood film scoring and the techniques of the modern scoring world. Led by industry professionals, dedicated sessions will address the creative process, orchestrating, conducting, music editing, and MIDI mockups. Participants can opt for one of two tracks - orchestral or hybrid - and 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 at NYU's state of the art facilities, featuring New York City's top-tier studio musicians. Previous workshops have included players from the NY Philharmonic and The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra.
