The Singapore Symphony Orchestra (SSO) has invited renowned Hollywood orchestrator and conductor Tim Davies to conduct a two half-day orchestration workshop next January.
21-22 Jan 2020 (Tu-W) | 2:30 PM – 5:30 PM | Victoria Concert Hall
The workshop aims to provide insights into orchestration and arranging, and is suited for composition students and individuals with arranging experience in any genre for a symphony orchestra. Up to six candidates will be selected to work alongside Davies and the SSO to further hone their art of orchestration. This will be Davies’ first such workshop held in Singapore.
At the workshop, participants will work on a piece by Ravel and learn about ‘Hollywood’ orchestrating, using cues from Tim Davies’ Trollhunters score. Each day will also feature an open dialogue session dedicated to a specific topic.
Davies’ film and TV highlights include La La Land, Trolls, Minions, Ant-Man, The Peanuts Movie, The Muppets, Empire, The Lego Movie 2 and Frozen 1 & 2. Davies is also prolific in the world of video games, having worked on multiple titles from the God of War, Infamous, Sims, Resistance and Batman franchises and the recent Marvel Spider-man game.
The Australian conductor has led concerts with symphony orchestras such as Detroit, Baltimore, and San Diego, and the Jalisco Philharmonic of Mexico as well as the Evergreen and National Symphonies of Taiwan.
