    WIM LA x UCLA Present: CRAFTING COMMERCIAL MUSIC

    When you hear “Girl, You'll Be A Woman Soon” do you think of Pulp Fiction? How about Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time”? Probably Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, right? What about The Kills' "The Last Goodbye"? Are you running to buy Under Armour ala Michael Phelps? 

    A well-placed song can raise the emotional connection and significance of an on-screen scene in a way that stays with us. So how does that song make it into that scene? What did the writer do to put themselves in a good position to be considered for such a magnificent moment? 

    In our panel discussion on crafting commercial music, we will hear from leaders in the major label and sync industry on the process of writing music with the aim of making a huge impact (through sync, landing a major label deal, and more).  From a label A&R song-focused perspective, music supervisors in charge of finding music for big-name productions, and a media company licensing tracks every day,  these women are at the TOP of their game and ready to share tricks of their trade. Their expertise and well-developed ears give them great insight into how writers, managers, publishers, and A&Rs in the industry today can point themselves towards mainstream success.

    In addition to the talk, we will host a live demo constructive critique of music submitted by WIM LA members and UCLA students. The panel will listen to 30-second song clips and give live feedback on the overall commercial and sync-ability of the tracks. They will share inside tips on what they look for, what trends to follow, and how to write music that speaks to the masses.
