To ensure that music professionals from all sectors can best cope with the fast-changing music landscape, MIDEM offers a strong and diverse conference programme covering the most burning topics for the industry.

With music for images representing an important revenue stream for the industry, MIDEM proposes to its world audience to listen to those directly involved in the movie and videogame music business and learn how to make the most of these great opportunities.

Building on MIDEM's previous exposure of the genre, videogame music - notably its increasing familiarity with film scores - will be discussed at a special“Music for Images” joint keynote.

Nitin Sawhney, the Anglo-Indian musician who penned Sony’s HEAVENLY SWORD, and the award-winning Composer Jesper Kyd, whose soundtracks include top titles such as ASSASSIN’S CREED, HITMAN and KANE&LYNCH will share their wisdom on the convergence of music, films and videogames.
