The SCL and Blake Neely
On October 6th, the Society of Composers and Lyricists will be holding a music technology event titled "Music Technology for the Working Composer." AP's David Knauer and Jason Atkinson were asked to be on the panel along with TV and film composer Blake Neely (Pan Am and The Mentalist) and moderator/composer Joel Douek. The event will last for two hours and will cover an incredible amount of information for experienced and new composers. Blake has generously offered to bring his entire composing rig to the stage to show how he writes. The setup consists of a Mac Pro running Logic, another running Pro Tools, a Vienna Ensemble sound source and a PC pumping out sample libraries. We will be covering many subjects related to tech and composing such as backups, power management, computer configuration, software and hardware, along with answering questions from the audience.
