Day 1 – understanding the context of the production chain & licensing
Within the first day of the workshop the goal was to provide musicians with an in-depth overview of the production process of soundtracks for movies and video games. Musicians must be aware that, when writing for audiovisuals, the music they produce must be functional to the vision.
Next to learning about the production process it is crucial to study about the different international laws for licensing and copyright as well. The musicians got introduced about how their musical work is protected by law as well as various types of rights within the European level.
At the end of the day the EMI participants took part in a round table at «La Claque» one of the most vibrant places for crosscutting artistic experimental events, where the award winning soundtrack composers, Pivio and Aldo De Scalzi, shared their experiences with the audience and discussed practical examples.
