November 10th 2016 - Composition in Film - 19:00pm - 22:00pm
Part of the Film Matrix series at Central St Martins this very special evening is dedicated to Composition in Film and Drama. This is both a networking event and a seminar with talks and panel discussions set up for the benefit of the students. Industry representatives are of course welcome.
We're delighted to have two outstanding keynote speakers:
Nitin Sawhney, musician, producer and composer:
Nitin Sawhney is one of the most distinctive and versatile musical voices around today. Firmly established as a world-class producer, songwriter, DJ, multi-instrumentalist, orchestral composer and cultural pioneer, Sawhney has become a latter-day Renaissance man in the worlds of music, film, videogames, dance and theatre.
To date, Sawhney has scored over fifty films as well as a plethora of international TV programmes, ads and cinema trailers. Signed to First Artist Management in LA, he has scored everything from dark, high-tension drama to light hearted animatronics.
He has scored ad campaigns for Yves Saint Laurent, Nike and Sephora and Trailer scores include Hollywood release “The Men who Stare at Goats”.
Sawhney is currently scoring Andy Serkis’ directorial debut for Warner Bros, “Jungle Book Origins”, due for release in 2017.
Barrington Pheloung, conductor, composer
Pheloung made his mark on the British popular consciousness when he began working in television on the popular 13 part series Boon in 1985. Anthony Minghella wrote a number of the show's scripts, and the series went on to be an enormous hit. Pleased with the reaction to his work on the series, Pheloung was eager to continue work with "Boon's" producer Kenny McBain, and their next project was the one which would firmly establish Pheloung's reputation in the UK, the enormously popular detective series Inspector Morse.
His motion picture scoring assignments began with Peter Wollen's Friendship’s Death in 1987, and he achieved a coup with Anthony Minghelia's 1992 hit Truly, Madly, Deeply. Since then his film credits have grown and include Shopgirl, And When Did You Last See Your Father, Hilary & Jackie, Nostradamus, Twin Dragons and The Mangler.
We'll also be joined by award-winning independent filmmakers and composers to talk about their work on both creative and commercial projects.
