Trading Places: Composers Working As Songwriters (and Vice-Versa)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The line between composing and songwriting is slowly dissolving. These days, trained composers are helping major pop acts class up their sounds, and integrating new sounds into their scores. At the same time, songwriters from the rock and pop worlds are finding work in film, TV and beyond. At this panel, you’ll meet music creators working in the fertile ground between pop/rock and traditional film/TV composing. You’ll discover a wide variety of pathways you may not have considered, including arranging, production music, video games, podcasts, commercials and more.
