Event details

Seminar by Valentina Bertuzzi, as part of the research project "Applied music to images and new technologies ”Co-financed by CIRDER - University of Tuscia and Saint Louis College of Music.

The Theme Song of a series is the opening song that accompanies the opening credits and is its main and immediate identifying element. Leonard Choen, Skin, Alabama 3, Ramin Djawadi, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Regina Spektor, Fiona Apple and many other artists have created Theme Songs in collaboration with directors and producers.

How do you elaborate a theme song? What are the references needed to make it happen? How do you recognize the identity of a series and then make it a song with a strong emotional impact?

Today the demand for Theme Songs is growing exponentially and the Masterclass offers the necessary operational parameters for the composer to orient himself in this new creative process.
The seminar, over a single six-hour meeting, will address the following topics:

1- Comparative analysis of successful models (Westworld; True Detective; Breaking Bad; The Sopranos; Orange is the New Black; Twin Peaks and others).
2- Semiotics of Theme Songs divided by film genres.
3- Study of the method of immersion in the unconscious of the character in order to capture his identity and translate it into sound identity.
4- Definition of the relationships of the creative forces such as: Composer, Showrunner, Director, Producer.
