Icon Collective visits artworxLA in Hollywood to teach students how to compose music for film scores and video games soundtracks.
Have you ever listened to music in an action sequence of a movie or video game and wondered how that track was produced? artworxLA students got to answer that question when they met with David Alexander of Icon Collective and Dylan Eiland, the creative DJ behind Le Castle Vania. This immersive 2-hour workshop offered artworxLA students a series of lessons that demonstrated how to work with Ableton Live to compose music for film scores such as John Wick and video games like Quake II and Quake III Arena.
