Paxos Film Scoring Workshop

Paxos Music Festival and Mihali Paleologou are happy to invite you to our 1st seven days Workshop on Composition for Film, which will take place from 27 August to 04 September 2017 at the Paxos Island, Greece.

Up to 12 applicants will be selected to take part in an intensive 7 days workshop designed for Composers that are looking to enhance their knowledge and compositional skills in writing for Film. The participants will have the opportunity to work in an ideal setting on the island of Paxos with an ensemble of internationally acclaimed musicians and faculty members.

The aim of the workshop is to give the composer all the essential knowledge and tools needed to create an original Film Score. Both the creative aspects of writing for film as well as the technical aspects and score preparation will be covered during the workshop. Additional emphasis will be given on Orchestration techniques and Extended Instrumental Techniques and their use in Film Music, expanding the composer’s sonic palette and promoting originality.

Each participant will be assigned to compose the music for a Short Film (5-7 minute duration) in a period of 1 week. The faculty will mentor and assist individually every composer in producing an original score for the Ensemble (with or without Electronics, optional); which will be performed live with the Film in a concert at the Paxos Music Festival at the end of the Workshop.

Workshop Schedule and registration info are provided at our Website.
