This MasterClass shows how many completely different possibilities exist with regard to re-harmonizing a melody, a theme or a motif. Furthermore, the participants will get an insight into studio work with an orchestra, including “Studio Conducting”.
Further contents are the orchestration or the writing down of a score. For this purpose, motifs, themes and/or melodies are worked out together and then harmonised in different ways. Harmonics and melody of film and TV music between 1945 and 1965 are also presented. From the great masters such as David Raksin, Hugo Friedhofer, Johnny Mandel, Miklos Rosza and Alex North to the great composers of American television series. Kuno Schmid accompanies the participants inside through the process, starting with a musical idea up to the finished score, including the implementation of sketches using the American chord numbering and the layout of a score. Extended music theoretical knowledge is absolutely necessary for this MasterClass.
