Musical Encounters. Between inspiration and provocation.
The congress of the Film Music Days Saxony Anhalt combined the science and practice of film music in exciting lectures and discussion formats over two days. Under the scientific direction of Georg Maas (Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg), a varied, professional and high-ranking program awaited those who know and are interested in film music. The event was therefore not only aimed at science and industry, but also explicitly invited interested musicians, students and lovers of film music.
Among other things, Tomi Mäkelä spoke on the provocation of visible music making in film in his keynote address. Annette Focks – one of the leading German film composers – gave a behind-the-scenes look at a current film production in the workshop discussion and David Reichelt came for a close-up. In addition, Christine Aufderhaar was recruited as the moderator for the discussion round with young film composers. Once again, young artists shared exciting insights into the start of their career in the film industry.
