Study Abroad Summer Program: part 1

Tyler Habig has been selected to study composition for film and video games at the Berklee College of Music in Valencia, Spain.  During the 6 week summer program, Habig will take four classes: Introduction to Film Scoring, Introduction to Scoring Technology for Composers, Film Scoring Techniques for Composers, and Video Game Scoring Fundamentals.  Taught by faculty Alfons Conde (The Abandoned [2006] , The Bride [2015]), Vanessa Garde (Exodus: Gods and Kings [2014], The Raven [2012]), Lucio Godoy (The Others [2001]), and Sergio Jimenez (Call of Duty: Black Ops II), the composers will be heavily “immersed in the aesthetic relationship between media and music and narrative analysis. They will also receive an introduction to the technology involved in this industry, such as MIDI/audio sequencing in scoring to picture and maximizing dramatic expression through the use of available software tools.”


Habig intends to use this summer experience as a supplement to last year’s workshop in San Diego, California – the Palomar Film Music Workshop – where he recorded a film scene under the instruction of Larry Groupé (Nothing but the Truth [2008], The Cable Guy [1996]) and Roger Neill (King of The Hill [1997], Mozart in the Jungle [2014]).

In a place where they don’t know anyone or speak the language. An honest insight into the first thoughts of starting something new, an incredible life changing experience.


I knew it wasn’t going to be easy.
