Does life really need a soundtrack?
A workshop facilitated by Maurice Seezer.
We are bombarded with music and sound design on a daily basis, and with more and more of the information we receive being visual, is it not time to put more thought into the way sound, in all its forms, can create a whole new narrative perspective? About Maurice Seezer:

He has contributed to a number of soundtracks for Jim Sheridan, Baz Luhrmann, Michael Rhymer, Kirsten Sheridan and Neil Jordan.
