Transversal Space of Creation

Film music (composition, image analysis, m.a.o)

The composing class for the image of CNSMD Lyon, a pioneer in the field, was created in 2004 by Patrick Millet. She trains talented young composers for the professions of image, sound or mute cinema, advertising, television programs, animation and the world of multimedia.

One of the main objectives of this training is to develop the artistic world of its composers, to train authors. It allows them to realize and accompany personal projects with a follow-up of the teaching team and personalities. It covers all the skills and knowledge necessary for the realization of professional projects and sets up a certain number of devices putting the students in real conditions, with a view to their professional insertion (realization of models, sessions in studio, cine-concert , etc.).
