About Christopher Dedrick

Christopher Dedrick, the Guild’s Past President, started his career as a trumpet player and although he evolved into a superb electronic composer, he always felt that the presence of live musicians in a score was a major enhancement. This Fund was established in his memory by his wife Moira Dedrick, and its objective is to encourage and support the hiring and use of live musicians, and, by this to show their aesthetic value in media scores not only to composers, but also to producers. Hopefully, both composers and producers will become excited, involved, and perceptive about what live musicians can add to their projects, and find ways to include them in their productions.  Click here to visit website to read more about Chris Dedrick.
