Following the massive success of the TV series Normal People, Sarah Glennane (CEO, Screen Composers Guild of Ireland) talks to the all-Irish music department behind the creation of the original score and placement of songs which formed the soundtrack to the hit show.
Music is an essential part of the storytelling process, guiding the audience through many of the emotional cues, and conveying information about characters, location, and action. This panel will explore the role of music in Normal People, the different creative and craft roles involved in bringing music to the story, and how having an Irish based music department shaped the music, and added to the production.
