Sundance Institute cues Composers Lab

Six Fellows ready to start Aug. 11

The Sundance Institute kicks off its Film Composers Lab today with six fellows under its wing.

The lab runs for two weeks at the Sundance Resort in Utah, where fellows study under biz pros like “Watchmen” composer Tyler Bates and “The Pacific’s” Blake Neely. Fellows also work with counterparts from Sundance’s Directors Lab to score actual scenes and learn to work with helmers.

This year’s fellows are Sherri Chung, John Hancock, Mark Orton, Arturo Rodriguez, Kareem Roustom and Rani Sharone. They come to the institute with years of experience as composers, conductors, engineers and arrangers.

“There are very few opportunities … for composers and directors to learn how to work together,” said Sundance Film Music Program topper Peter Golub. “The Composers Lab gives emerging composers and filmmakers a creative haven to experiment and collaborate.”
