MediaSoundHamburg 2019

That was MediaSoundHamburg 2019: Randy Thom’s MasterClass SoundDesign was a great success, as were the MasterClass Foley with Sue Harding and Adam Méndez, the MasterClass orchestration under the direction of Bob Zimmerman and the MasterClass film music with Danish film composer and sound designer Kristian Ednes Andersen. For the first time, the African Night took place in the resonanzraum with around 200 visitors. Other programme highlights included the public award ceremony of the Young Talent Award Media Music with the Kaiser Quartett and the closing evening with representatives of the female composers’ collective Track 15. MediaSoundHamburg will celebrate its 10th anniversary next year and will take place from 7 to 16 August 2020.
