Film Music Concerts: The Emperor’s new Clothes?

Film Music Concerts: The Emperor’s new Clothes?
Interesting times for soundtrack buffs! Ghent, Krakow, Malaga, Tenerife, Vienna, Prague …: Film & media music events are popping up all around Europe. The biggest ones are based on concerts and claim to gain awareness for media music, develop new concert practices for orchestras, and bring new audiences to the ivory towers of high culture.
But didn’t some wise film music critic tell us, that the best film music is the one that merges with the picture?
Treat or threat: How far do concerts change the object of desire?

The International Film Music Critics Association IFMCA meets the Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik.

With Eleni Mitsiaki (Kinetophone), David Serong (Cinema Musica), Jörg Gerle (filmdienst), talking to film music / concert composer, and mediamusic e.V. board member Gregor Schwellenbach.

Presented by International Film Music Critics Association IFMCA
