Chaired by Daniel Lewis (UK), Relationship Manager - Classical, PRS for Music

with Jacob Wiltshire (Pusher) and Jobina Tinnemans (Composer)

It is obvious from the history of film and TV that composers from the classical era have a lot to offer in soundtracks. This seems even truer today, as some of the most timbrally exciting and exploratory music is being made by composers in the contemporary classical world. In 2023, PRS for Music led a groundbreaking initiative – New Streams – in partnership with Riot Ensemble and the synchronisation agency PUSHER. This project saw concert works repurposed for film trailers, breathing new life into works awaiting repeat performances, and opening new revenue streams for concert composers. Daniel Lewis (PRS for Music) will be joined by Jacob Wiltshire (PUSHER) and Jobina Tinnemans (Composer) to explore some of the unique examples of contemporary music in film, and how this model can open up audiences to the power of this exceptional music.
