The Úbeda Film Music Conference is truly an international celebration of film music - while only a few composers visit each summer, many other composers contribute to the Úbeda Spirit. Returning to Úbeda for a second year and bearing gifts and prizes from the many composers on Varèse Sarabande Records is highly respected soundtrack producer Robert Townson, fresh off the release of his 850th CD!
Robert Townson's 500th album was celebrated in the spring of 2001 with the release of a career retrospective 2-CD set that chronicled some of his own favorite recordings. It was appropriately called In Session: A Film Music Celebration and featured an extensive essay where Townson discusses his career and recalls selected anecdotes from his many recording sessions. 2003 marked Varèse Sarabande Records' 25th anniversary and, to commemorate this, he produced a pair of acclaimed 4-CD sets titled Varèse Sarabande: A 25th Anniversary Celebration, together offering over ten hours of music and featuring themes from over 150 films.
With his 500th CD already 350 CDs behind him, Robert Townson remains the most prolific producer of soundtrack albums in the world.
The first 300 registrants to the conference will be offered a set of complimentary CDs generously donated by Varèse Sarabande: one by John Debney, one by David Arnold and one by John Powell. In addition, a one-of-a-kind Varèse Sarabande "Grand Prize" will be presented to one lucky winner toward the end of the festival. A special raffle is being arranged to award an unbelievable set of discs that includes autographed CDs from David Arnold, Christophe Beck, Marco Beltrami, Mychael Danna, John Debney, Randy Edelman, Cliff Eidelman, John Frizzell, Michael Giacchino, Harry Gregson-Williams, James Newton Howard, Mark Isham, Mark McKenzie, Joel McNeely, David Newman, John Powell, Trevor Rabin, Graeme Revell, David Shire, Alan Silvestri, Brian Tyler, Christopher Young, Aaron Zigman and more! This is an absolutely priceless collection of over 30 CDs! More details to come! A second prize of 10 limited edition Varese Sarabande CD Club titles will also be awarded.
