Mumbai, Sep 17 IANS | 12 months ago

A Music Composers Lab, which will offer a unique opportunity to budding composers to interact with successful professionals in the field of music, will be launched during the 15th Mumbai Film Festival here in October.


While the fest will be held Oct 17-24, the Lab will be conducted at the Yash Raj Films Studio here Oct 21-23. It will provide a hub for like-minded emerging film composers to network with each other and share new skills in the realms of film scoring.

Six budding composers will attend the Mumbai Composers Lab and interact with professional composers. A team of music and film industry specialists will share their knowledge with them.

A two-day film scoring session will be followed by an interview and audience question and answer session with award-winning British composer Ilan Eshkeri and the Lab's creative advisors.

Ilan Eshkeri, best-known for his film scores of "47 Ronin", "Coriolanus", "Stardust", "The Young Victoria" and "Kick-Ass", as well as his collaborations with Coldplay, Annie Lennox and Take That, will lead the creative team of composers.

The Music Composers Lab will be held in the Yash Raj Film Studios. Applications for budding composers to take part in the workshop will open Tuesday.
