Featured artists include premiere sound composer, Diego Stocco, whose music has been heard on Sherlock Holmes, Transformers, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood and Revelations, The Tudors, C.S.I., Cold Case and The Daily Show as well as countless trailers such as Tron: Legacy, Terminator Salvation, 2012 and Spiderman Shattered Universe. He has also contributed to the multi award-winning Spectrasonics sound library, which is used by almost every post production studio on the planet. Stocco will offer a rare glimpse behind the curtain to explain techniques he uses to create his unique ‘musical sounds.’

Equally fascinating are the sublime soundpoems of composer, Nat Evans, who will be sharing a special performance synchronized to the sunset at 7:14 p.m. Evans’ soundscapes are like extremely artful musical reveries, blending the very best of real instruments, natural sounds and processing effects to create an artform that is in a league of its own.

About Art of Music: “The Art of Music is a groundbreaking series presenting criminally overlooked specialty music for film, TV, video game and other media. It gives music supervisors, film composers, film directors, game designers and other media professionals a unique chance to explore niche music style, discover upcoming projects and stay ahead of the curve. Each The Art of Music showcase features musical masters performing genres that are generally under the radar, but nevertheless lend themselves to adding more depth and persona to video-based projects. Spotlights on lesser-known Cuban, Mexican and Chinese music genres; Delta and pre-depression blues; and 1930’s period music are just some of what you can expect from this lively series, which occurs three times a year at the Bleicher Art Gallery in Santa Monica.”
