The SCL Presents



Inspired by literature from authors such as Edgar Allan PoeBram Stoker, and Mary Shelley, horror has existed as a film genre for more than a century, and many film composers have left an indelible musical imprint on these sinister stories. On the first ever SCL panel featuring horror scores, SCL Vice President Charles Bernstein (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Cujo) will interview four contemporary composers on the 'cutting edge' of the genre...
The Society of Composers and Lyricists Seminar: Annual Membership Meeting 2016 - Sean Callery Michael Abelsis an African-American composer who burst onto the film landscape with his score for Academy Award® winner Jordan Peele's Get Out. He is also known for his orchestral works Global Warming, Delights & Dances, and Urban Legend, and choral pieces such as Be The Change and Limitless. With a "keen ear for musical color and a deft ability to adapt structural elements from popular music into the symphonic idiom" (Houston Chronicle), Abels has gained widespread recognition for his orchestral music. Global Warming and Delights & Dances have both been recorded by the Chicago Sinfonietta for the Cedille label. He also wrote the score for Fantasea at Chicago's Shedd Aquarium.

Born in Phoenix, AZ, Abels attended the University of Southern California, studying with James Hopkins and Robert Linn. Later he studied West African music with Alfred Ladzekpo at the California Institute for the Arts. He currently serves as Director of Music for New Roads School in Santa Monica. Michael is a past recipient of grants and commissions from the National Endowment for the Arts, Meet The Composer, LA Opera, and many orchestras throughout the USA. In his concert career he has worked with James Earl Jones, Doc Severinsen, and a diverse group of other musical artists. Abels was one of the founders of the recently-formed Composers Diversity Collective.
The Society of Composers and Lyricists Seminar: Annual Membership Meeting 2016 - Jon Ehrlich Charlie Clouser is a recording artist and composer for film and television. The recipient of twelve BMI Film & TV Music awards, Charlie has also received ten platinum and gold record awards for his work as a member of the band Nine Inch Nails, and as a producer, programmer, and remixer for David Bowie, Rob Zombie, Killing Joke, Helmet, Marilyn Manson, Jamiroquai, White Zombie, and many other artists.

His scores for all seven films in the Saw franchise combined brutal electronics and homemade bowed metal instruments with tortured orchestral washes and became landmarks in industrial-strength horror, and his "Hello Zepp" became a trademark of the franchise and a minor icon in the world of memorable horror themes. His scores for Dead Silence, Death Sentence, The Stepfather, Resident Evil:Extinction, The Collection, and other films expanded upon these ideas and produced dozens of memorable themes, terrifying ambiences, and tension-filled rhythmic climaxes.

With over two hundred hours of television underscore to his credit, Charlie's scores to the CBS series Numb3rs and the NBC series Las Vegas spanned a wide range of styles. More recently, his main title theme from the Fox/FX series American Horror Story was widely praised and helped to establish the creepy vibe of the very successful series, and his theme and underscore for the Fox series Wayward Pines provided another thick dose of unsettling atmospheres and powerful action-adventure themes.
The Society of Composers and Lyricists Seminar: Annual Membership Meeting 2016 - Robert Lydecker Holly Amber Church has scored many films including the recently released supernatural horror The Toybox, starring Denise Richards and Mischa Barton and the Shudder film, Ruin Me. She also wrote the gritty score for Padraig Reynolds’ crime thriller/horror feature Rites Of Spring, and the orchestral thematic score for his supernatural thriller The Devil's Dolls, both of which were released by IFC Midnight.

Her score for Ruin Me was nominated for Best Original Score at the Women in Horror Film Festival last year. Holly’s other current projects include the inspiring biopic Butterfly In The Typewriter, starring Susan Sarandon and Nick Offerman, from director David DuBos, and the psychological thriller Open 24 Hours - once again teaming up with director Padraig Reynolds.
The Society of Composers and Lyricists Seminar: Annual Membership Meeting 2016 - Jon Ehrlich Over the past 15 years Colin Stetson has developed an utterly unique voice as a performer, composer, and bandleader. From his work as a soloist (primarily alto and bass saxophones), featured in his critically acclaimed New History Warfare Trilogy, to his most recent outings with projects such as Sorrow: a reimagining of Gorecki's 3rd Symphony, and the avant-post-black metal band, EX EYE, Stetson continues to produce an array of musical offerings that defy classification.

While his recordings have been featured in numerous films and TV episodes (12 Years a Slave, Rust and Bone, and The Black List, to name a few), he has also produced original scores for a wide variety of films, where he has utilized a rich amalgam of his signature sonic characteristics, enhanced by various arrangement and instrumentation, orchestral and otherwise. 2018 has seen an original score on the A24 film, Hereditary, and anticipates new work on The First, from Hulu.
The Society of Composers and Lyricists Seminar: Annual Membership Meeting 2016 - Jon Ehrlich Golden Globe and Emmy nominated composer Benjamin Wallfisch's career spans over a decade and 60 feature films. He has composed music for such legendary film makers as Steven Spielberg, Gore Verbinksi, Denis Villeneuve, and Lars von Trier, and has worked on scores that have been recognized with multiple awards and nominations at the Academy Awards®, Golden Globes®, Ivor Novello Awards, BAFTAs and World Soundtrack Awards. Recent movies include Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049 (co-scored with Hans Zimmer), the highest grossing horror film of all time, It, directed by Andy Muschietti, Gore Verbinski's A Cure For Wellness, and Ted Melfi's Hidden Figures (co-scored with Hans Zimmer and Pharrell Williams).

Notable past projects include orchestrating and conducting the Academy Award® winning score for Atonement, writing additional music for Steve McQueen's Best Picture Academy Award® winning film 12 Years a Slave, and scoring the short film Auschwitz, produced by Steven Spielberg and directed by James Moll, as well as collaborating with iconic multi-award winning artist Adele for her tribute to George Michael at the 59th Grammy Awards®.
