10-time Emmy-winning composer Bruce Broughton is the latest distinguished guest to participate in the International Film Music Conference that will take place this July in Úbeda, Spain.
March 27, 2007 - The BSOSprit Society is proud to announce that composer Bruce Broughton will be joining composers David Arnold, John Powell, Javier Navarrete, Pascal Gaigne and John Debney at the Third International Film Music Conference in the City of Úbeda, Spain, from July 19-22, 2007.
Selections from Broughton's repertoire will be featured during the large orchestral concert to take place at the conference, along with music from some of the other participating composers. In addition to Broughton's attendance in the conference, we're also announcing that we are entering the final stage of registration, which you can do on the website: http://congreso.bsospirit.com beginning on March 31. The first 300 people who register for the Full Conference (Sessions + Concert) will automatically be entered into a raffle: Honorary Conference President John Debney is providing four copies each of his promotional albums to My Favorite Martian and Inspector Gadget - which he will personally autograph for the winners.
One of the most versatile composers working today, Broughton has written for film, television, video games, the concert stage, and even theme-park rides. A board member of ASCAP and a governor of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Broughton is well respected in the film music community, and has received 20 Emmy nominations, winning a record 10 statues, as well as Grammy and Academy Award nominations.
On the big screen, Broughton has delighted fans with his scores to the westerns Silverado and Tombstone, the science-fiction big-screen adaptation of Lost in Space, the Steven Spielberg produced adventure Young Sherlock Holmes, the tongue-in-cheek horror comedy The Monster Squad, the Walt Disney animated feature Rescuers Down Under, the dramatic mystery The Presidio and the family drama The Boy Who Could Fly, among many others. For the small screen, Broughton composed Emmy-award winning music for the television films Eloise at Christmastime, Eloise at the Plaza and Warm Springs, as well as the main titles for hit television shows like "JAG", "Tiny Toon Adventures" and "Dinosaurs".
His music can be heard at Disney Theme Parks worldwide, in Paris, Florida and California, and he even composed music for the first orchestral computer game score, Heart of Darkness. Last year he provided music for the direct-to-video family release of Bambi II, which sold a record 800,000 units in its first day in stores.
