Inaugural lecture of Professor Stephen Baysted
It’s about time: Composing Music for Film, TV and Video Games
Wednesday 14 November - 6.00pm
BMITS, Bognor Regis Campus, Bognor Regis PO21 1HR
Time is the fundamental signifying domain of music: music unfolds linearly within its frame, only becoming audible and progressively revealing its form as the seconds tick by. The Italian term tempo is used to define music’s speed, and musical speed is measured in beats per minute. From the perspective of the film, TV and video games composer, however, I will argue that there are far more significant ways in which time itself proves to be critical to the enterprise of writing commercial music to picture. This lecture, illustrated with many video and musical examples, explores ‘time’ and its manifold impacts upon the compositional and creative process.
This lecture is open to all and is free to attend - BOOK NOW!
Tea and coffee will be available from 5.30pm in the Learning Resources Centre. Car parking on campus is free of charge after 5.00pm.
