I can't believe it's fall already. Spring and summer were wonderful; I had a chance to work as an orchestration assistant for the illustrious Kevin Kaska (lead orchestrator for John Debney) on Pete's Dragon, Ice Age 5, and other music for a recording with the Royal Scottish Orchestra, and finally managed to complete my new home recording room! We've been taking our good ol' time getting it done (2 yrs!), and while it still needs some acoustic absorption, it's finally usable.

I just got back from an AMAZING time at the GameSoundCon and American Engineering Society conventions. The warmth and talent of the people in the video game community never ceases to amaze me, and it was wonderful to connect with friends old and new. Working now on some personal projects for full orchestra and choir that I hope to record this winter. Life is good. 🙂

Sandra Schnieders shared Alliance for Women Film Composers's event.

In a majority of my film scoring classes, I was the only woman. When I was studying my way through two college music degrees, I could count on one hand the times we covered the music of any female composer in six years.

This is why I am so excited to hear the music of my mentors and friends this Friday-- those who have served as inspirations to us women composers in taking the road less traveled. If you're in Los Angeles this Friday, come hear some great new music at this free concert--and watch the tide of musical history begin to turn.
