Screen Composing with Adam Gock

You’ve probably heard the music of Adam Gock – he’s one of Australia’s most performed screen composers, having written the music for Masterchef, Gogglebox and Shark Tank (just to name a few).

Come along to find out how he creates music for TV and to hear his advice on how to get work as a composer in the Australian screen industry today.

Adam will cover the following points:

  • How to respond to a brief for composing a piece for TV – how to follow through and deliver
  • His creative process
  • The differences in composing for commercials, drama and factual content
  • How to manage multiple jobs
  • Adam’s personal journey to composing and setting up The D.A’s Office
  • Plus advice for composers and musicians wanting to compose for screen.

….and more.
