THE IWD ISSUE

We’re already at the end of March and it’s been an exciting month! We had the pleasure of collaborating with lots of inspiring people for some incredible International Women’s Day celebrations. Not only did we team up with the forces behind the Women Composers’ Forumand host a joint event at Spitfire’s HQ, we also spent our Saturday at The Church Studios for their Women’s Day mixing and mastering workshop with some of the industries top engineers. 

As well as celebrating IWD, we also welcomed French composer, Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch into the building for an exclusive Ones To Watch Piano Day performance. At the end of last year, some of the Spitfire team were lucky to visit Fallout composer, Inon Zur, in LA for an exclusive interview where he talked through his life as a composer, and how he got into composing for game. Finally, Christian spent some time in the studio with Mowgli composer Nitin Sawhney for a brand new Creative Cribs episode and In Depth about his score for the Netflix feature. 

'eyes ahead' - homay schmitz

Eyes Ahead is about getting stuff done, keeping on, going ahead with things but also not to forget to find enjoyment along the way. Almost reflecting the build-up to the event for me. It’s a piece specifically written for that day, to serve the purpose of intrigue and demonstration, not only on my part but also for the engineers and producers, showcasing all of us in a working environment. I think you can feel the urge to press on within the pace and pattern played by the shorts. Finding a melody over harmonies that make sense to me is my enjoyment.” - Homay Schmitz
