Six Musicians Named for 2006 Sundance Institute Composers Lab

The Sundance Institute announced its six musicians selected for the 9th annual Sundance Institute Composers Lab, which runs from July 25 until August 10 in Sundance, Utah. This year’s Lab Fellows include: Terry Dame, Viktor Krauss, Jessica Lurie, Craig Richey, Hahn Rowe and Martin St-Pierre. During this two-week intensive lab, the group will participate in workshops and creative exercises under the guidance of leading film composers and film music professionals. At the Labs, the Composers Lab participants also collaborate with filmmakers from the Sundance Institute Feature Film Program as well as the Sundance Documentary Program to explore the process of writing music for film and to create accompanying scores for scenes shot by the Directing Fellows during the Institute’s Directors Lab. First offered from 1986-1989, the Composers Lab was re-introduced in the summer of 1998 to provide a “collaborative and supportive environment in which composers can experiment and expand their musical language.” [Brian Brooks]
