Berlin Music Week 2013
Most Wanted: Music
The Berlin Music Commission invites music business professionals to pitch and sell music to some of the industry’s busiest music supervisors from Hollywood, New York and London as well as to key German music supervisors.
In cooperation with the National Association of Record Industry Professionals (NARIP, USA), BMC has featured synch experts who select, commission and place music in blockbusters (The Amazing Spiderman, The Social Network, True Grit), television (True Blood, Grey’s Anatomy) and video games (SingStar, Guitar Hero).
“The cooperation of NARIP with BMC has been a vital pairing for several years now. Here in Berlin we offer independent music companies and artists direct access to international industry leaders for the third time. Ultimately, Most Wanted: Music is a tool to help German artists and music companies develop and grow their international business.” Olaf Kretschmar (Cluster Manager BMC) points out the intention of the event.
This year, NARIP Music Supervisor Sessions feature Michael Hill (Nurse Jackie, Bored To Death) and VH1 / MTV’s Paul Logan (Basketball Wives, Couples Therapy, Black Ink Crew) who actively seek new music for current projects.
Most Wanted: Music’s Expert Networking Sessions, will also focus on music supervision and synchronization this year. 50 participants will have the chance to interact with successful music supervisors and film producers from Berlin, Germany and Europe to create direct business relationships with these experts and to gain valuable advice. Invited experts include Milena Fessmann/Cinesong (worked for Wim Wender, Anton Corbijn et al.) and Dirk Reichardt/Barefoot Music (Til Schweiger).
As a direct result of NARIP’s last Music Supervisor Sessions in Berlin a track of the German band No-Fi Riots was placed in the movie Chronicle that became the #1 box office hit in January 2012 in the U.S. It is no wonder NARIP Music Supervisor Sessions have sold out three times in a row (2011, 2012 and 2013 at SXSW).
Following the sessions all participants are kindly invited to join the reception of the Berlin Music Commission and the Listen To Berlin Showcases at Postbahnhof. More info here: www.berlin-music-commission.de.
The event will take place at Thursday 5 September 11.00 am CEST at Postbahnhof, Berlin (Workshop Room 1).
