The final Thursday of fresh inc 2014 was an intense rehearsal and lesson day for the participants.
Instrumentalists spent most of the day in rehearsals or lessons and practicing, and some of the fresh inc 2.0 participants had meetings with faculty members to work on their projects.
The composers had a forum with Stacy and Dan on self promotion, and a coupe of composers gave their presentations as well.
Following dinner, we had an exciting double Skype session with composers Austin Wintory and Hummie Mann.
Austin went first and talked about how he came to compose music for video games, and he filled us in on his fascinating story of being introduced to music and composition and what got him interested. He filled us in on current and upcoming projects, and we’re all looking forward to seeing what he’s up to next!
After we spoke with Austin for a while, we dialed in Hummie Mann. Hummie talked about his work in film and television composition, his path to where he is now, and upcoming projects!
