Michael, Lolita & Kristopher Perform At The Kraków Film Music Festival

IMG_2025Michael, Lolita & Kristopher recently presented a live concert of their film and television music at the 9th International Kraków Film Music Festival. The concert included world premieres of suites from several of their most popular scores along with previously-performed live concert versions of some of their most recognizable themes. The concert itself lasted over an hour, and their music was received with great enthusiasm and a lengthy standing ovation.

They were also featured guests at two festival panels. The first was moderated by BMI’s Doreen Ringer-Ross and delved into the difference between composing for animation and composing for live action. The second, led by the three composers themselves, was a lively discussion regarding the creative scoring process and the director/producer/composer relationship.

Lolita, Michael and Kristopher also participated directly in the international press conference which opened the festival weekend.
