Montclair Film Festival will present Masters of the Score: Sound Design For Film, Audio, Games, a free panel event on the importance music plays in storytelling, on Saturday, April 30 at 3 pm in the Audible Lounge.

The discussion will be moderated by Ellen Horne who joined Audible as the Executive Producer for Audible Original Content in September. Prior, she worked for 12 years on the Radiolab podcast. Horne considers herself a maker and says her mission is to find new sounds and original content. She’s excited that Audible will be rolling out some new and unique programs.

Horne put together the panel of master composers from different media to compare their techniques and principals and ask: sonically, what’s unique to each medium? Each of these composers brings their own ideas of how sound design and the score should work with story. Nathan Johnson (BRICK, LOOPER) creates unique compositions for film, Mark Phillips (Serial) feels that in podcasting a good score is one that you don’t necessatrily notice, Dylan Keefe (Radiolab) feels that sound should guide the listener, and Caleb Epps (Dawngate, and Rock Band versions 2,3, Beatles, and Lego) uses sound to create universes, give players clues, and other gamer.

Audible will be livestreaming the panel on sound design for those who can’t be there in person at this link: adbl.co/SoundDesign
