Also in 2019 you can look forward to Music in Motion at the DAVE Festival. Of course only in Dresden’s only Nanoplex, the Thalia Kino. As always, the music documentary series will be curated by Philipp Demankowski.
Dresden premiere No. 2: “The Library Music Film” follows record producer, composer and library music enthusiast Shawn Lee as he travels from his recording studio in London, through Europe, and California, USA to search out and interview the great pioneers of library music. Legends such as Alan Hawkshaw, Keith Mansfield, John Cameron, Barbara Moore, Janko Nilovic, Brian Bennett, Stefano Torossi plus many, many more… share their incredible stories and amazing anecdotes from the golden era.
Library Music was composed and recorded specifically as an ‘off the shelf’ option for use in Film, Broadcasts and Advertising. It was cheaper than commissioning a composer to score a soundtrack and music was written to cover every genre, every instrument and every atmosphere.
The Golden Era of Library Music is generally deemed to have been from the late sixties to the mid-eighties with thousands of albums produced during this time. It was a time when the World’s greatest composers had access to full orchestras in the best recording studios with the very best engineers and recording equipment.
