Here we add your landscape self photo, your short text and a URL link to your music for the GEMS Magazine '24 which I print and send to the tutors and guest speakers.
Your GEMS Magazine page will include your photo, email address, contact phone number, bio text and a link to your website or music.
You will receive your own copy in your GEMS Welcome Pack on arrival day. Your GEMS Magazine has tutor and alumni interviews. The other participants on the program. The timetable, events and more. It’s a great way to be remembered, put a name to a face and be contactable by the tutors and guest speakers.
Your Composers Directory page is private and exclusive for the guest speakers and program instructors to familiarise themselves with you and your work. We add your URL links, curriculum, contact details and audio video files to the page. You will have access to review and sign off before we share with the tutors.
The Faculty Handbook is printed and given to each of the guests, tutors and faculty and includes your bio, curriculum and contact details for Christopher Young to read to prepare for your one on one mentor session. The faculty and guests refer to it during the summer program. The Faculty Handbook also contains the schedule times and dates for your sessions below which you have in your GEMS Welcome Pack:
RTVE Orchestral Recording
One on one Mentor Session
Score Review Session
Any other meetings organised for you.
Remember to sign it for Christopher and any other guest speakers at the end of the program. It's another great way to build a professional relationship.
Please send me a friends Facebook invite to
Nigel Valencia so I can include you to our private GEMS PROGRAMS group.
In the GEMS Programs Group you will be invited to share your music and introduce yourself. It's a friendly group where you can meet other composers joining this years summer program, get accommodation tips and even organise traveling together.
The group gives you access to past GEMS composers, tutors and visiting speakers and is where you will find all the up to date news and information about the 2024 GEMS Film Scoring Program, Valencia, Spain
During the Welcome Day we will add your photo to the digital TVs in the conference room to share with the other composers and help everyone get to know your name, including the guest speakers and faculty.
It's a great way to give you presence in the room, and credibility and credence as a composer on the rise.
You can submit a second landscape photo for the Welcome day if you prefer.
