Workshop 2019

As part of the 20th Festival International du Film d'Aubagne from march 13th to 23rd 2019

The Festival International du Film d’Aubagne organizes with the support of the SACEM a masterclass of musical composition for picture.
This workshop takes place March 13rd to the 23rd and intended 8/10 young composers/musicians.
Like every year this Master Class is led by a famous composer (Stephen Warbeck, Jérôme Lemonnier, Bruno Coulais, Gilles Alonzo, Marc Marder, Jean-Michel Bernard, Selma Mutal, Charles Papasoff, Pierre Adenot, Cyrille Aufort...).

In 2019, Christophe Héral led the Master Class of the 20th Festival International du Film d'Aubagne.


"For the 20th anniversary of a festival that brings together so well music and cinema, I will have the laborious and exhilarating task of combining eight different musical journeys and make them sound as one.
If a single musical score can allow the creation of multiple films, all different, but just as great, what about the opposite? And what if we mixed proposals? Another huge novelty in Aubagne: the creation of an interactive musical score performed live while a player faces Canadian zombies; pretence of the apprehension that comes with the constraints of video game musical composition."
