Emerging Roles, Technologies, and Concepts in Interactive Media Scoring


At:  AMERICAN FILM INSTITUTE (AFI), Los Angeles, CA 90027 

Talent agent Adam Levenson moderated a panel of renowned composers and music technology innovators at the cutting-edge of emerging trends in music for interactive media and beyond.  The panel demonstrated and discussed key aspects of the creative, technological, and business implications of developing concepts such as real-time composition, algorithmic composition, artificial intelligence driven scoring, on-demand cloud-based integration, and more.

It was an evening of lively discussion and demonstrations as we glimpsed into our crystal ball toward the future of the art of scoring.  A Q&A followed the main presentation.
