Overview

Dedicated sessions will address the creative process, orchestrating, conducting, and MIDI mockups. Participants will 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.

As a participant, you will record and mix your music with the top industry professionals of New York City. Throughout the workshop, your work will be critiqued by Mark Snow, Michael Levine, and NYU Steinhardt’s acclaimed Screen Scoring faculty. You will also have the opportunity to record and create your very own sample libraries, guided by NYU Steinhardt faculty and engineers

TRACK ONE: Orchestral Ensemble

As a participant, you will record your music in one session with an orchestral ensemble. You are encouraged to incorporate the rich traditions of classic Hollywood large-ensemble film scoring with more contemporary hybrid techniques by exploring the use of both acoustic and electronics elements. Previous workshops have included players from the NY Philharmonic and The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, and have been recorded by such top-flight engineers as Paul Geluso and mixed by grammy winning mixer, Lawrence Manchester.

TRACK TWO: Soloists & Chamber Ensemble

As a participant, you will have multiple days of one-on-one recording time to workshop your music with several virtuosic instrumental soloists where you can experiment with extended techniques, improvisations, and unusual instruments to create unique worlds of sound.

You are encouraged to explore the wide possibilities of combining electronics and sample libraries with the singular contributions of our eclectic soloists. In the past, we have worked with soloists like David Weiss on woodwinds (The Rookie, Noah, Lion King), John Benthal on plucked instruments (Idina Menzel, Nanny Diaries, Lion King), and Paul Woodiel on strings (Fargo, The Nanny Diaries).
