Friday 6 October at Showroom Cinema
SensoriaPro is our unique, informal gathering of composers, filmmakers, music publishers, music supervisors, games developers and festivals all under one roof to discuss the latest innovations in music and the moving image. A must-attend event with a stunning line up of speakers, direct access to international buyers and informal, friendly networking. We’re delighted to announce a few of this year’s highlights – with plenty more to be announced soon..
Interview with Geoff Barrow (Portishead, Beak>, Invada Records)
Geoff Barrow will join us in conversation to talk about his work on soundtracks such as Alex Garland’s Ex Machina and the forthcoming Annihilation plus scoring, among others, Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire and Black Mirror (5th episode, series 3).
Geoff will also discuss his inspirational and extensive career with Portishead, a hugely successful and vast catalogue of production work, co-founding Invada Records (the label created to promote alternative music and scores to movies and games) and Beak> – the three piece band that formed in 2009, a pure celebration of music creation.
Artist-Friendly A & R with Mike Smith (Warner/Chappell Music)
Mike is MD of the global publishing company and will talk about his experiences spanning 30 years of scouting and signing a huge array of bands from Sheffield’s own Arctic Monkeys to Blur. He’ll give practical advice on working with labels and publishers.
The ever-popular Scoring Contest is back with a focus on music for advertising and a Honda campaign clip. Registered delegates can compose or pitch a piece of music – a shortlist of submissions will then be critiqued on the day by our expert panel of Ian Neil (Director of Music for Film and TV, Sony Music), Rachel Menzies (Native Music Supervision) & Jon Skinner (Music Gateway).
The venue, Showroom Cinema is located directly opposite Sheffield train station.
