Though we might think of film as an essentially visual experience it would be remiss to underestimate the importance of a soundtrack. The right soundtrack can intensify emotions and provide a swift rhythm for its audience. This panel will focus on exploring the musical elements while providing insights on composition through professional growth and development.

 

Panelists include King Britt and invited guests. Moderated by Rodney Whittenberg.

 

Co-presented by Recording Academy Philadelphia Chapter
