The 7th International Film Music Festival Ciudad de Úbeda has just announced my participation in their renowned festival, from July 18th to 24th, in Spain.
I was nominated for four of the festival’s Goldspirit Awards, including BEST COMPOSER and BEST SCORE. I am truly honored to be awarded BEST TELEVISION SCORE for my work on “Human Target.”
I will take part in the Úbeda festival in a number of exciting programs. On July 21st, I will conduct a chamber orchestra in an intimate recital setting. This up close and personal concert will feature world-premiere arrangements of music from “Caprica,” “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” ‘The Walking Dead” and “Battlestar Galactica.“
Then, on July 23rd, I will conduct the Philarmonic Orchestra of Málaga. This thrilling performance will feature a world-premiere concert suite of my score for “Human Target” as well as pieces from other scores.
For any aspiring composers who can make the trip, I will also be conducting a Film Scoring Workshop. Fans are welcome, of course, but this event will be geared towards young professionals. I will focus on the art and craft of scoring, the politics of getting into the industry and other important aspects of being a professional composer.
This concert will be the first time I’ve ever performed the score from many of these projects, including the full-orchestral “Human Target” suite. Narrowing the scores down to my favorite selections is proving quite challenging. Any suggestions from you guys? What pieces do want to hear in concert?
