Partnership with Society of Composers & Lyricists

The PMA also announced that the Society of Composers & Lyricists will serve as Co-Presenter of a PMC panel entitled “Writing the Next Library Hit: Composing Techniques for Production Music.”

That panel, which will be moderated by composer Benoit Grey, will explore the question, “How is writing for production music different than songwriting or film scoring?” The SCL is committed to advancing the interests of the film and television music community.

Registration for the Production Music conference is still open on the conferences website.
