of musical composition for the image

Workshop 2020

As part of the 21st Music & Cinema - Festival International du Film d'Aubagne from November 24th to December 4th 2020.

The Festival International du Film d’Aubagne organizes with the support of the SACEM a masterclass of musical composition for picture.
This workshop 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 2020, Renaud Barbier led the Master Class of the 21st Music & Cinema - Festival International du Film d'Aubagne.


"I am very happy to have been appointed to this 2020 Master class. It will be the occasion to concentrate ourselves on the musical evolution of films in their entirety and play with their dramaturgy. My choice landed on four short fimls of about fifteen minutes, which will allow us to work on the rythms of each story. The observation of the narration will guide our instrument choices, our style and harmony, the search for placement and theme evolution, which will all make emotions emerge.

This musical narration will require a common work from the conception to the representation. It is with honor that I will guide these nine composers so that they put together their creations, their knowledge and their humanity. Together, we will share our paths of life to create a collective work of art and accompany the emotional thread and the invisible of film."
