Gold Coast Indie Film and TV Network presents:
Musical Score of treats with an opening show by legendary singer Lee Conway and guest speaker Composer Loic Valmy.
The Gold Coast Indie Film/TV Network is very excited to announce for its second gathering special guest French Music Score Composer Loic Valmy, who will speak on The Secrets of Screen Music, on Wednesday 9 May at The Arts Centre Gold Coast Basement Venue.
The night will open with international icon singer of Country and Western Lee Conway, who is making a very special comeback with his new band ‘Smoking Bullets’. Lee has commented on his new band as being one of the best he has played with and he is very honored to be up front with such a great blend of musical talents.
This alone for all Conway fans is not to be missed, adds Caroline Russo founder and host of the GCIFTN.
Lee has appeared before the Queen and Prince Phillip and was delighted when Prince asked if Lee had gargled with gravel.
For 40 years he has been regarded as one of the most respected artists in Country Western, and has been producing many award winning songs and jingles in radio and TV.
On the second part of the night, French born Musical Score Composer Loic Valmy will be our keynote speaker.
Loic is set to demonstrate the best uses of screen music and how film-makers, directors and producers can take advantage of its wonderful power through several video examples. After working on many European productions, documentaries, feature films and TV series, Loic bought his European influence to the Australian film industry after a move to Queensland’s Sunshine Coast in 2004.
He has since worked on award winning Australian feature comedies, short films, the national campaign of the Australian Koala Foundation and will this year be working with a symphony orchestra on an international feature documentary.
Loic said the true power of screen music lies in how it changes people’s judgements and thoughts.
“Of course, music can influence an audience’s feelings and emotions, but let’s see what it can do on our judgement of a scene or a character and how it can even influence what we think and decide when we must think of it.
“Sadly, in the best cases, music in film is only used as an emotional media, and in the worst cases, it is just a decorative element used to fill the blanks – but it can do so much more,” he said.
