The Kaboom Composition Team is a small team of composers that writes the music for every Kaboom Production. Members of the team work directly with working composers who specialize in music for a multitude of industry genres, including the Video Games, Animation, Film, Rock, Jazz, TV and Commercials.
Students will synthesize the language of visual media, develop their individual compositional voice; interpret and apply artistic aesthetics to visual media projects, and learn orchestration and arranging.
Additionally, composers will learn how to represent themselves professionally and walk into new gigs with a portfolio of product, liner note and IMDb credits. Kaboom will facilitate conversation about becoming involved with professional organizations like The Recording Academy, The Society of Composers & Lyricists, BMI, and ASCAP which will help grow composers’ networks.
