We all know the old adage all work and no play. But is this actually possible for the modern day professional composer?
A composer's job is not only delivering on time and on budget. For a composer to remain viable and grow as an artist, they need to continually research new music, stay on top of technology, and be inspired and energized by new ideas. In addition, they must make time for industry events to meet new potential collaborators and stay in touch with their peers.
Veteran game composer, Tom Salta, along with a panel of other award winning composers will share their insights and wisdom on how they aim to strike a balance between their professional and personal lives. This topic is rarely, if ever, spoken about publicly but yet it is, perhaps, one of the most important aspects for any composer to manage if they want to have a productive and fulfilling long-term career.
