11.00am: Cavendish Music Sync Surgery
Calling all electronic producers and composers looking to get expert advice on how to doctor your tracks for the sync industry. Ever wanted to hear your music on an advert or TV show, or even in a film, and then reap the financial rewards? Want to know what’s holding your tracks back from being picked up by supervisors or music libraries?
We’re offering producers a chance to have their tracks remedied for sync by our head of production and senior producers, with the potential of releasing your track on one of our catalogues. We’ll give live feedback on your tracks, followed by a panel with award winning electronic producers. It’s a rare opportunity to receive advice and expertise from the perspective of the UK’s biggest independent production music library. Compose or adapt a track to our real-life brief, submit in advance, and we’ll critique it live on the day. We’ll also allow you the chance to amend the tracks later, selecting the best ones to sign to our library.
Following the live feedback session, we’ll be available for producers to consult us with their burning queries and concerns of all thing sync-related in one-on-one chats. For the second half of the surgery we’re hosting a panel with producers who are the top of the game: winners of the Production Music Award’s Best Electronic Track in 2018 & 2019 respectively – Jake Shillingford & Nick Evans from Choppersaurus and Jamie Wilder. We’ll be discussing what it’s like to make music for sync full time, what the secrets are to making award-winning electronic music, and tips and tricks for getting yourself and your music noticed by the right people. Budding music makers will get the chance to ask questions from these leading industry experts.
