Join us for a panel discussion with five Emmy® contender composers, celebrating and discussing their music. You won’t want to miss an amazing evening with these talented composers.
Liverpool born John Murphy began scoring movies at the age of 25. In 2001, following the success of Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, and Snatch, he moved to Los Angeles. Since then he has worked with some of the industry’s most respected and luminary filmmakers, including Danny Boyle, Guy Ritchie, Stephen Frears, Matthew Vaughn, and Michael Mann, producing film scores as prominent and diverse as Sunshine, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Miami Vice, Snatch, Kick-Ass, and the seminal 28 Days Later. After Kick-Ass, Murphy set up the record label Taped Noise and began work on several non-movie projects.

Recognized in the press as “an extremely original voice” with “a virtuoso touch”, and “a truly unique force in the entertainment industry”, Ronit Kirchman is the composer for the riveting Emmy®– and Golden Globe®-nominated television series The Sinner. Ronit’s widely varied film scores include the feature-length Zen and the Art of Dying, Finding Neighbors, and The Skin I’m In, as well as The Golden Age of Fish, Say You Love Me, and Gowanus, Brooklyn among others.

She’s also a prolific songwriter, music producer, conductor, multi-instrumentalist, and singer, and continues to compose original scores for the theater, dance, multimedia installations, and the concert stage. Ronit is a pioneer in the reimagining of film scores for live performance in her Remix Anatomy concert series, which has been supported by FilmForum and Sundance Institute.

Royal Television Society-nominated Carly Paradis is a Canadian born, London based Film and TV composer, songwriter and pianist. Her credits include scoring the RTS-winning and BAFTA-nominated series Line of Duty, The Innocents, for which she won a Hollywood Music in Media Award in the Best Original Song for Television category, Sick Note, and Prime Suspect:1973. She also tours live with Clint Mansell (Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan, The Wrestler) and she performed the piano on Mansell’s soundtrack to the BAFTA-winning Moon. As a recording artist Carly releases her own albums, including Hearts To Symphony, and the upcoming Nothing is Something, which will be released in early August 2019.
Didier Lean Rachou is the award-winning composer of both the 16-time Emmy®winning series Deadliest Catch, and Gold Rush. Aside from scoring over 1,200 hours of television, Didier’s feature film credits include Powder Blue, How To Rob A Bank, Moving McAllister, and Her Best Move. He has had the privilege to work with such diverse artists as Ashford & Simpson, David Johansen, McCoy Tyner, Luis Bonfa, Paquito D’Rivera, and members of the Pilobolus Dance Theater, amongst many others as a composer, producer and engineer. In 2018, Didier took home his 15th ASCAP Screen Music Award. In 2017, his peers voted him the recipient of the Composer’s Choice ASCAP Television Composer of the Year Award. In 2019, he has once again been nominated for the ASCAP Composers’ Choice Award.
Composer David Schwartz has been nominated for 3 Primetime Emmys® for his work on Arrested Development, Deadwood, and Wolf Lake, plus a Grammy® nomination for his work on Northern Exposure. He has also received 5 BMI Awards for his work in television music. Schwartz, who grew up in New York, has been playing music across genres most of his life. He studied at the School of Visual Arts (NY), and Berklee College of Music, and during college he played bass in a wide variety of orchestras, ensembles, and bands. He quickly began engineering and producing music – and his quirky, multi-instrumental, and song-oriented background prepared him perfectly for his first big writing assignment when he landed Northern Exposure.
