HCM CITY— British Emmy Award-winning composer and pianist Michael Price will travel to HCM City and share his experiences as part of a project launched by several city organisations.
Price is one of the project’s lecturers who will work with dozens of young Vietnamese musicians and film directors from local studios and art universities and colleges.
His talks will focus on the most popular production and editing styles for soundtracks in the UK and Hollywood today, as well as the newest composing methods and connections between composers and film directors.
Price’s two-day trip, beginning on May 8, will also include work and exchanges with Vietnamese composers, music producers, filmmakers and film companies.
Price and composer David Arnold won an Emmy in 2014 for their music for the BBC TV series Sherlock.
Price worked as a music editor for Hollywood films such as Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings, Beeban Kidron’s Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason and Nanny McPhee, and Richard Curtis’s Love, Actually.
In 2013, Price was nominated for two prizes, Best European Composer and Best New Composer, at the BSO Spirit Goldspirit Awards presented by BSO Spirit, a popular Spanish website about films.
In HCM City, he will work with 15 young talents selected by the project’s organisers, British Council and Salon Saigon, a lounge and place for young artists in films, theatre and the arts.
