15th Mumbai Festival to host 'Music Composers Lab'

MUMBAI:The 15th Mumbai Film Festival is doing all that it can to woo its audiences. The festival will be a host to the launch of India’s first ‘music composer’s lab’ and will be held at the Yash Raj Film Studios located in Andheri, Mumbai.

The lab will be presented by UK’s Bohemia Junction and Abbey Road Studios in association with PRS for music, UK and will take place from 21- 23 October.

The lab will offer a unique opportunity to emerging Indian composers to interact with successful professionals in the field of music and to get a better understanding of what lies at the heart of a music score in the arena of moving image.

Over two days, six composers will attend the Mumbai ‘composers lab’ to meet and interact with professional composers and a team of music and film industry specialists, from the UK and India, who will share their knowledge and expertise with them. The composers will also be advised about many aspects of music and the industry. The lab is an initiative to provide a hub for like-minded emerging film composers to network with each other, as well as with industry professionals, to learn new skills in the realms of film scoring.

The two-day film scoring sessions will be followed with an interview and audience Q & A with award-winning British composer Ilan Eshkeri and a with the lab’s creative advisors on 23 October at 1pm at metro cinema.

Special guest Ilan Eshkeri, best-known for his film scores of 47 Ronin, Coriolanus, Stardust, The Young Victoria and Kick-Ass, as well as his collaborations with Coldplay, Annie Lennox and Take That, will lead the creative team of composers that will be announced shortly.

Applications for young composers to take part in the workshop open today (17 September) and will close on Monday, 7 October.
