Master class with Sean Callery
In this special Master Class, two-time Emmy Award winning composer Sean Callery demonstrates today’s film and television composers work. Using a clip from the award winning TV series 24, Callery develops the scene musically from start (dialog only) to finish (playing the completed broadcasted version).
Using computer and music keyboard, live parts are added giving the audience the opportunity to experience different subtexts and moods and enhanced drama of the scene. Paraguayan composer-in-residence Sagardia will contribute his individual musical variation.
The intimate setting of the Villa Aurora will provide a rare opportunity for composers, directors and those interested in film to ask questions of these composers about their work and professional experiences.
The Villa Aurora, Pacific Palisades, August 22 at 7:30PM
