|Session Name:||Making Your Score Sing|
|Speaker(s):||Tom Salta, Dwayne Condon, Kathryn Amyotte|
|Company Name(s):||Persist Music, New York Film Chorale, New York Film Chorale|
|Track / Format:||Audio|
|Overview:||Game and film composers often include a choir in their soundtrack, but very few composers and orchestrators have had specialized training and experience in writing for chorus and working with singers in the studio. Learning some basic and accessible principles will enable the composer to increase the effectiveness of the emotional impact that only the human voice can lend to a game or film score. A list composer Tom Salta will be joined by Kathryn Amyotte and Dwayne Condon, experts in the field of choral arranging, as well as singers credited with well over one hundred film, TV and game scores. This panel will discuss the obstacles composers often face when it comes to vocal arranging and recording sessions, and how to overcome them. Using recorded demonstrations, the audience will see how composers' ideas can be realized by a live ensemble, and demonstrate ways to write and record more effectively for it.|
