The BSOSprit Society is proud to announce that composer John Scott will be joining composers David Arnold, Bruce Broughton, John Powell, Javier Navarrete, Pascal Gaigne, John Debney and more at the Third International Film Music Conference in the City of Úbeda, Spain, from July 19-22, 2007.
For over 30 years, John Scott has collaborated with some of the foremost producers and directors worldwide, including Richard Donner, Mark Damon, Hugh Hudson, Norman Jewison, Irvin Kershner, Daniel Petrie, Roger Spottiswoode and Charleton Heston, among others. He has been an essential voice in international scoring that thoroughly belies his occasional over-looked stature in the midst of ‘brand name’ composers.
Early in his career, as an arranger, John Scott worked with legendary producer George Martin and The Beatles, Tom Jones, Cillia Black, and many others, and as a musician, he played for Henry Mancini and John Barry. He has scored over sixty feature films, including Antony and Cleopatra, The Final Countdown, Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, King Kong Lives, Shoot to Kill and Man on Fire. For his work on television he has garnered three Emmy Awards.
No stranger to the concert hall, John Scott has composed two symphonies, a ballet and three string quartets. He is also the Artistic Director and Resident Conductor of the Hollywood Symphony Orchestra Society, which has performed live film music concerts in Los Angeles area.
