NDO - British composer, Michael Price, who won an Emmy award for outstanding music composition for the BBC TV series, Sherlock, will come to Vietnam for the first time to participate in workshops on music for 15 Vietnamese students and young composers at Salon Saigon, from May 8 to 12.

This is considered a rare opportunity to meet and share the creative process of film scoring with the composer as he talks through the highs and lows of his career. He will also be joined by Vietnamese composer, Nguyen Manh Duy Linh, and filmmaker, Phan Gia Nhat Linh.

The great draw of the workshops is that composer Price and the Vietnamese speakers will explore the role of music in telling a story within a film, discuss the current trends in film scoring and examine the crucial relationships amongst the members of the film-making team.

The participants will also have the opportunity of a mentoring session for a practical exercise with their own short film projects, which will be shared with the public at a networking event.

Price is a composer who won an Emmy award in 2014, as well as awards from the Royal Television Society, Music & Sound, and Televisual Bulldog in addition to a BAFTA nomination and two further Emmy nominations for the critically acclaimed BBC series Sherlock, which he scores with David Arnold. Other current TV projects include the second season of crime drama Unforgotten and the fourth season of Sherlock (with David Arnold).

Prior to achieving acclaim as a composer himself, Price enjoyed significant achievements as a music editor on a number of blockbuster films such as Peter Jackson’s ‘The Lord of the Rings’ trilogy, Richard Curtis’ ‘Love Actually,’ and ‘Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason’, and Alfonso Cuaron’s ‘Children of Men’. As a music editor, Price has been nominated for four MPSE Golden Reel Awards, winning in 2001 for ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.’
