New conference Screen Music Connect to explore audio for film, TV and interactive media

Screen Music Connect, a new London-based symposium series exploring the music of film, television, video games and virtual reality, today announced details of its inaugural event.

Created by James Hannigan, award-winning composer and Game Music Connect co-founder, the all-new event will be held on September 24 at the newly-furbished Purcell Room at the Southbank Centre in London.

Screen Music Connect builds on the success of the sold-out game music conferences to celebrate the diverse world of music for film, television and interactive media, along with the creative talent behind it.

"I’m tremendously excited to announce this new event series, which is designed to spotlight and engage the creative talent working in all forms of screen music,” said founder and creative director James Hannigan.

Screen Music Connect will open with a keynote from Vick Bain (BASCA), and the day’s programming will comprise interviews, case studies and roundtable discussions with a leading line-up of media composers and multi-industry practitioners on a variety of subjects including soundtracks and classical music, creative collaboration in film and television. AI-generated music and video game composition also feature on the festival’s programme.

Full details of the day’s sessions and other guest speakers will be announced soon.

Screen Music Connect’s target audience is drawn from the music, sound and production communities of all media industries – from pro, semi-pro and amateur composers to producers, engineers, music supervisors, audio directors and production managers – plus viewers, fans of soundtracks and anyone with an interest in the evolution of screen music.
