Date: Saturday, June 9

From the title sequence to the end credits, and everything in between, composers have an indelible impact on the emotional lens through which we view a story. How do you create a sound that captures the essence of a character, or elevates an already-great scrip to the next level? In this conversation, go behind the score with some of TV’s most dynamic composer/creator pairs as they discuss how the two roles come together to shape a characters story, and how a show’s themes can deepen our connection to the characters we love.
