Session Name: Finding the Spark: Working with Live Players
Speaker(s): Austin Wintory
Company Name(s): Wintory Global Engineering
Track / Format: Audio
Overview: In this age of increasingly robust sample libraries and sequencers, it has become common for composers to rarely work with actual living, breathing musicians; and the less one does it, the more intimidating it can become. This session, focusing on cello and flute, will feature two visiting players to help walk through the dynamics of the composer/musician relationship, in the hopes of revealing best practices and demystifying the process. The session will focus on how to ideally interact with the musician in order to produce truly spectacular performances that transcend simply having the music read.
