SoundTrack_Zurich 03: The full program is now online
Zürich · 27.-30. September 2022

Oscar-winning film composer Rachel Portman (Chocolat, The Cider House Rules), trumpet player Nils Petter Molvær (European Film Award 2021 Best Score), Fatima Dunn (Swiss Film Award 2022 Best Score), and Zeltia Montes (Spanish Goya Award for Best Score 2022) are only a few of the 60 Speakers at the 3rd edition of SoundTrack_Zurich (STZ).

As a vital part of the Zurich Film Festival‘s Industry Program, STZ is the central business hub for Switzerland's film and media music scene. The conference is a close cooperation between Zurich Film Festival (ZFF), Tonhalle Zürich, ZHdK, and SoundTrack_Cologne, the leading European event on music in film and media. It is organized by Forum Filmmusik.

Focus: Networking and new commissions

“Our main focus is the effective crosslinking of the Swiss and European composers with the ZFF film guests and the international film industry to initiate future jobs and licensing deals”, says Michael P. Aust, head of SoundTrack_Zurich.

Each day starts with 30mins of speed matching. One of the central networking events at STZ is the Swiss Music Export Business Mixer on Thursday. A matchmaking event for women in media music only is organized in cooperation with SWAN, WIFT, and the American AWFC.

The successful colleagues: Best practice

An industry undergoing a process of radical change: On two days in two parallel strands STZ presents important composers and case studies from Switzerland and Europe. Additionally, current issues, like eg. online remuneration, or the score of the new Netflix hit series THE SANDMAN, are covered in workshops, case studies, and discussions. A Dolby Atmos workshop and the IMMSANE meeting of the university scene take place at ZHdK on Friday. The Swiss composers are always right at the forefront with four events covering Swiss projects like HORS SAISON and TSCHUGGER.
