Animated Music – seminar and networking event
Animated Music is an annual seminar and networking event that aims to bring together visual content creators with composers, musicians and sound designers. Animated Music explores the creative interaction in the development and production process between music and images to provide a basis for innovation in future audiovisual productions. The event is also a networking day bringing composers and visual content creators into closer dialogue with each other.
