Guild of Music Supervisors Partners With Mondo.NYC Conference

GMS NYC led programming for a day-long series of panel discussions.

Coming on the heels of successful conference held on the USC campus on Saturday, the Guild of Music Supervisors today announces a partnership with Mondo.NYC, an incubator confab for the music and tech industries that includes a multi-venue festival showcasing emerging artists from around the world.

Scheduled for Oct. 2 to 5, Mondo.NYC will host panels at the Williamsburg Hotel in Brooklyn. The final day, Oct. 5, will feature music supervision heavies like David Schulhof, Exec. Producer of “Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives,” Sue Jacobs, music supervisor for “Sharp Objects” and “Big Little Lies,” and heads of music from VICE Media (Charlotte Von Kotze) and Viacom (Anita Chinkes-Ratner), among many others. Topics such as how composers and music supervisors work together and the current documentary boom also feature on the schedule.

Programming for the sessions was headed by GMS co-founder Jonathan McHugh, who said: “Being a native New Yorker and getting my first job from attending a conference, I learned the power of education and networking to kickstarting a career. We are thrilled to bring together a ‘who’s who’ of esteemed music supervisors to educate and inspire.”
