The SCGC Presents:

TV Scoring Seminar

Composer Daryl Bennett
Writer/Producer Damon Vignale


November 12th and 26th, 2019, 6:30 p.m.

At the Canadian Music Centre, Vancouver B.C.


Join the SCGC for an in-depth look at the spotting and scoring process for dramatic and episodic television with composer Daryl Bennett and writer/producer Damon Vignale. In this two-part seminar series, we discuss, dissect, and ultimately score select scenes from the recent City TV police drama “The Murders”. Having scored and created (respectively) the series, Daryl and Damon provide first-hand insight into the creative process of capturing drama and narrative with music.


This seminar series is open to both participants and auditors. In part 1, participants will select and spot a scene from “The Murders”. In part 2, participants will have the opportunity to present their cues, while Daryl and Damon provide feedback and analysis. In both parts, auditors are welcome to attend and participate in discussion.
