Where students and professionals meet

Joe Kraemer, David Shire & Walter Murch, and Terence Blanchard teach about film music, sound design and the relationship between composer and director. 

This year's Film Music Seminar will take place on Tuesday 17 October 2017 from 09:00 to 16:00 at Vooruit Ghent with a focus on the different roles of jazz music in films. Is it the music genre of a specific ethnic group? Is it an essential aspect of crime films or musicals? What is its potential in such films as ‘Birdman’? Is an orchestrated jazz theme still considered jazz? Or does jazz require a different form of cinema that centres around improvisation? Dr. Martine Huvenne and Peter Vermeersch moderate a debate with David Shire, Walter Murch, Joe Kraemer and Terence Blanchard.
