Hollywood Music Workshop 2018 Announces Summer Line-Up

Over the past ten years Hollywood Music Workshop has welcomed students from all over the globe, learning from top composers, arrangers and sound engineers in the beautiful City of Baden, just outside of Vienna. Many of those students have furthered their careers and gone out into the composing world, scoring for Film & TV. In addition, they made lasting friendships with mentors and other students. Hollywood Music Workshop is excited to celebrate its 10th Anniversary this summer with an extended curriculum now also including SCORING FOR TELEVISION with 2-time Emmy winner John Lunn (“Downton Abbey”).

“We are happy to celebrate our 10th Anniversary with such an illustrious group of mentors, consisting of successful Hollywood composers, orchestrators and engineers. With the addition of SCORING FOR TELEVISION and Emmy Winner John Lunn, we will now cover all aspects of media composing,” says HMW director Dimitrie Leivici. “Over the past years we have seen so many of our former students succeed in the industry, working on exciting projects. In addition, friendships have been built and a supportive peer network was established. We look forward to another decade of our Hollywood Music Workshop,” adds co-director Lilo Bellotto.

The 2018 Hollywood Music Workshop (HMW) will take place from July 9 through August 16 and include 3, 5 and 6 day masterclasses. After last year’s success HMW is happy to welcome back video game composer Cris Velasco with SCORING FOR VIDEO GAMES, TJ Lindgren with CREATING MIDI MOCK-UPS and Johannes Vogel with CONDUCTING FOR MODERN FILM SCORING. Award-winning composer Joe Kraemer (Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation) will be back in Baden with his FROM CONCEPT TO COMPOSITION class and Conrad Pope will once again teach his popular class ORCHESTRATION AND ARRANGING. To round up the summer scoring academy, composers have the opportunity to RECORD THEIR COMPOSITIONS with a 50-piece orchestra at the renowned Synchron Stage Vienna, where Hollywood composers such as Hans Zimmer, Lorne Balfe, John Paesano, Harry Gregson-Williams and Rupert Gregson-Williams recorded just recently. Joe Kraemer alongside Conrad Pope will guide participants through the recording process and will make sure that the compositions will be recorded professionally using the state of the art equipment and world-class orchestra of the Synchron Stage. Concert master and Hollywood Music Worskhop Director Dimitrie Leivici will lead the 50-piece orchestra and provide additional coaching. Scoring mixer and film composer Frankie Chinasky will be the lead recording engineer, leveraging the world class equipment of the sound stage and the control room.
