Program

Confirmed speakers include music supervisor Amelia Hartley and former Tindersticks guitarist Dickon Hinchliffe, who both worked on the highly successful Netflix/BBC TV series Peaky Blinders. We will also be focusing on scoring movie trailers, specifically those from Justice League, Daredevil, Mad Max: Fury Road and The Avengers, with the people who worked on the projects. These include composer Andre Ettema, sound designer Allert Aalders and composer Paul Deetman.
Alongside that, we'll be looking at how Artificial intelligence is beginning to make real and credible music. In June, Google shared a machine-generated track created as part of its Project Magenta, and Brian Eno launched a new video that uses A.I. to accompany his 2016 album The Ship. Now, researchers at Sony have unveiled a pair of songs composed through A.I. using the company’s Flow Machines software. One, titled “Daddy’s Car,” is in the style of the Beatles, and Sony CSL Research Laboratory is releasing an album next year of songs entirely written by artificial intelligence. Representatives from the company will reveal everything about the project at BMIM 2017. More speakers are to be announced shortly as Buma Music in Motion once again brings together the very best talents in the creative industries.

Allert Aalders studied sound synthesis with Ernst Bonis at the Utrecht School of Arts in the early 90’s. He was a founding member of techno act Human Beings in the mid 90’s. In the 2000’s he started as sound engineer at Utrecht’s Tivoli venue, toured as front of house mixer with acts like Epica, Nobody Beats the Drum and especially Berlin’s techno-punk god T.Raumschmiere.
In 2012 he founded Sonar Traffic with Ben Spaander (Cosmic Force). With over 50 mostly vintage synths this is the ultimate synth geek playground, located in Kytopia in the old Tivoli venue in Utrecht. Each year during the Studio Stekker festival Kytopia and Sonar Traffic turn into an electronic music summer camp.
In 2016 Sonar Traffic pooled their resources with the Solos to work on sound design for media and software, using our vast array of synths and modular systems.

Dickon Hinchliffe

Dickon’s unique style of composition and arrangements developed from his classical study of the violin and song writing and recording in bands. A multi-instrumentalist - guitar, violin, banjo, piano - he is a founder member of the British band Tindersticks with whom he wrote orchestral arrangements, recorded numerous albums and toured worldwide.

He began scoring films when French director Claire Denis asked Tindersticks to write the music to two of her films and following this he scored her acclaimed film Vendredi Soir.
