SYNC MUSIC LISTENING SESSION
During this live session, two professionals associated with The Guild of Music Supervisors will analyse different tracks presented by the record labels Freshsound (Jordi Pujol), Discmedi (Álex Eslava) and Trem Azul – Clean Feed (Pedro Costa). The music supervisors will evaluate the songs for their positioning as music for film, television, advertising, video games, apps and other existing or emerging visual media platforms. The session will also present a case study to explain to the audience how to navigate the world of synchronisation and the negotiation of terms for the use of a composition.
