As one of BMI’s sponsorships, the University of Southern California’s Scoring for Motion Pictures & Television program includes the expert mentorship of Emmy/GRAMMY-winner and 4-time Oscar-nominee, Dennis Sands. Sands, who owns his own cutting-edge studio in Santa Barbara, teaches students how to mix their scores via the use of Dolby-Atmos, a unique technology that captures individual sounds and places them in distinct areas around the film-viewer so that the effect is a more virtual experience.

The most recent session of the sponsorship was held Saturday, April 7, with Professor of Practice and Chair of the USC Screen Scoring program, Daniel Carlin, and Vice President Creative - Film, TV & Visual Media, Doreen Ringer-Ross, on hand to support the eager scoring students and watch Sands in action. World-renowned for his work in the studio, Sands has recorded and mixed for many of BMI’s most prolific and successful composers, including Danny Elfman, Thomas Newman, John Powell, and, for more than 40 years, dozens of film and television projects with Alan Silvestri.
