The Tao of Steve-In conversation with the Worldwide President of Music for EA Games

Steve Schnur is Worldwide Executive and President of Music for Electronic Arts (EA), the largest video game producer in the world. In this unmissable keynote he’ll talk about how the company uses music in 2019-from EA’s ongoing game-changing music supervision for the FIFA franchise (“A video game that steered music trends” Noisey) to working with composers from Hanz Zimmer to Mark Mothersbaugh, he’ll play out some of EA’s iconic cues and clips-and gaze forward to opportunities for the next generation of artists, producers and composers to open conversations with EA about music use in gaming.

The Potential of Noise

One of the greatest studio engineers and record producers of the 20th century, a world without Conny Plank’s influence on music is unfathomable. Instrumental in shaping the early sound of Kraftwerk, Plank would go on to work with legends such as Neu!, Cluster, DAF and Devo, eventually breaking through to the mainstream with the likes of Ultravox, The Eurythmics, and the legendary Scorpions. Berlin-based music supervisor Milena Fessmann produced The Potential of Noise, a 95 minute documentary that also traces the history of Conny Plank through the viewpoint of the artists he worked with. In 1991 Fessmann founded Cinesong and has worked on more than 200 movies. This Q&A session will look at both Conny Plank and Milena’s work as a music supervisor.

Session with Frans Bak (Forbrydelsen aka "The Killing")

Frans' music for the Danish TV‐series Forbrydelsen (aka "The Killing"), of which he scored all 3 seasons, was noticed in Hollywood where he now has scored 4 seasons of The Killing – the US remake of Forbrydelsen. He also scored the popular series Doctor Foster for BBC One and is now working in both Europe and USA as one of the most sought after composers in the film and tv business today. More about this session soon.

The Art of Teamwork - MocroMaffia

Composer and Buma Award winner Martijn Schimmer, Golden Kalf winner and director Giancarlo Sanchez and composer Daniel Polman worked together on very successful series Mocro Maffia, a television crime series about the Dutch violent gang war. Giancarlo’s interest and fondness for youth and popular culture make him a versatile filmmaker that can speak to millennials and any generation that follows them. How does this reflect in the score of Mocro Maffia? How did the process work, what was the role that each took and who made the final decisions? What did they discover about the process of sharing creative input and artistic responsibility from the experience, and, most importantly, would they do it again?
