With Composer Brian Keegan

In this presentation, composer Brian Keegan takes us through some of his work for film. He shows how musical responses arise from ideas and emotions that are present in a film.

He looks at film composition as an act of translation that takes the intentions of the director as they occur in the film and reimagines them through the medium of music. During the presentation Brian will work through the creative process that results in finished music cues in a number of genres including action, horror, sci-fi and documentary.

Brian Keegan is a composer and sound designer from Ireland who has written music for live performance and film scores for numerous short films. He has scored the feature films Insatiable and The Hidden (Kirby Productions) and the feature documentary Defining Moment and the TV documentary series Njinga (Lateral Vision Productions).

His music has been heard in performances and at screenings across Europe as well as in Australia, South America and the USA. He received a postgraduate scholarship to study music composition at Trinity College Dublin and his work has been recognized with awards from Germany’s DAAD and with the François de Roubaix music composition award in commemoration of the French film composer.

Duration: circa 75 mins followed by questions.
