#8040A Using SIBELIUS with Richard Bronskill

  • Richard Bronskill has been an orchestrator and composer in Hollywood for more than 20 years, and has worked with composers such as Michael Giacchino, Christophe Beck, Christopher Young, Rolfe Kent, Mark Mothersbaugh, Chris Lennertz, Billy Goldenberg (he was quite young) and Alex North (he was very young!). After thousands of pages of handwritten scores and years of painful tendonitis in his right arm, he began working with MOTU's Mosaic, then advanced to Sibelius which he has been using quite comfortably for the last 5 years.

    This seminar is about how he uses Sibelius 6; settings and procedures that he's developed over the course of several years and many projects that optimize speed and workflow.  All users, regardless of program version or level of experience, should find it enlightening.
