Global Music Industry Comes Together for a Breakfast of Music with Shesaid.so
Experts in music supervision gathered at Shoreditch House, London, early last Thursday before an audience of music industry women and Soho House members. The panel discussion was the latest in a series of speaker events organised by shesaid.so, an exclusive global network of high profile women with active roles in the music industry.
Curated and moderated by shesaid.so London Committee leader, Harriet Moss, also Sync Manager at Manners McDade, the 90 minute session featured four of Europe's most experienced music supervisors: Andy Stafford ECD, Big Sync Music (Axe, Lipton, Knorr) Duncan Smith from PlayStation UK, Amelia Hartley, Head of Music, Endemol Shine (Peaky Blinders, Black Mirror) and Sarah Bridge, Music Supervisor (Theory of Everything, X&Y, Glue (C4))
The aim of the event was to bring music industry women together to hear about about how music is used within advertising, film, television and video games. The discussion covered the creative process, the intricacies of licensing, and the life of a music supervisor with shared tips and and a Q&A session.
Andy Stafford said: “I thoroughly enjoyed this event which was very well attended and lively - despite the early start for us music industry night-owls. The setting was twee, the audience refreshingly curious and the conversation stimulating. It was a great to lead the discussion on music in advertising and catch up with industry colleagues in the games, film and TV business – I like to think everyone learnt a lot from one another. Big Sync has worked on over a thousand ad campaigns in the last year so we certainly had a lot to share from both a creative and strategic perspective. I am big fan of what shesaid.so does and was delighted to be asked to speak and encourage others to support them in their mission to promote collaboration, creativity and positive values"
Harriet Moss said: “At shesaid.so we love to share expertise from all areas of the music industry with our members (over 1000 women around the world). This event successfully brought together some of the most knowledgeable and experienced music supervisors in the business, from a breadth of media. It was a pleasure to host them altogether and hear their fantastic personal stories and tips.”
The full story, complete with audio recording will appear on shesaid.so website soon.
