The Festival, with the support of SACEM, organizes for the eighth consecutive year a Master class of musical composition for picture. This year, the composer Charles Papasoff will lead the Master class March 16th to 26th. Intended for 10 young composers, the workshop consists of musical composition exercises on short movies as "His Wooden Wedding" by Leo McCarey and "Doggone Tired" by Tex Avery. The objective being to build a complete work for the closing ceremony of the Festival (on March 26th) where the young artists will perform a public cine-concert directed by Charles Papasoff.
The adventure of the digital era is only just beginning...
The sound track composer metamorphoses into a hybrid being, as keen on timbre as on melody, harmony and rhythm. He shares space, in X.1, with a sound editor who becomes his best accomplice. His precious articulate composer heritage rubs elbows with a virtual approach that reinvents itself with every moment. His weapons are multiple; from sheet music to computer, from improvisation to composition. He understands the process of creation in all its stages and anticipates the occupational hazards in order to deliver a sound track that lives up to the aspirations of the film and its director. Pretty program... beautiful life. We invite you to share a workshop where reality is in fiction. Or is it the other way around?
