NEW YORK - Schirmer Trade Books has released "Music Supervision: The Complete Guide To Selecting Music For Movies, TV, Games & New Media," a new book written by Ramsay Adams, David Hnatiuk and David Weiss.
Music supervision involves matching music to TV, live events, film, video games, ring tones, and a host of other media, and is considered one of the fastest-growing careers in the music industry. Finding the perfect song is just one of many steps one needs to know as a professional music supervisor. This book unveils real-world scenarios and legal landmines, explores sound design, profiles key players with insightful interviews, and provides project form templates that will save time for seasoned music supervisors.
Industry insiders Adam Schlesinger, singer/songwriter for Fountains of Wayne; Jason Bentley, music supervisor for the film "The Matrix"; Budd Carr, music supervisor for Oliver Stone's films; Chuck Doud, music supervisor for Sony's video games division; and Doug Wood, president of Omni Music are among those lending insight to the role of a music supervisor.
The release comes in conjunction with the launch of an accompanying Web site (www.musicsupervisioncentral.com), designed to serve as a resource with audio and video samples, and an active discussion forum.
Priced at $17.95, "Music Supervision: The Complete Guide To Selecting Music For Movies, TV, Games & New Media," is available in all major bookstores and via online retail stores
