Rocking the Screen: Artists Composing for Film & TV (Presented by Variety)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It used to be that you needed an extensive classical background to make it as a film or TV composer. These days, music for screens has enveloped every imaginable genre - and its practitioners come from all over the musical map. Our panelists are the distinguished composers behind some of today’s most popular shows and films - and they all started out playing with successful bands. They’ll reveal the unique paths they took into the composing world, and how these two parts of their music careers intertwine.
