LOS ANGELES, May 31, 2012 – Film and television composer Trevor Morris – fresh off his 2011 Emmy and Gemini award wins – will head to Córdoba, Spain for this summer’s Festival Internacional de Música de Cine, i.e. The Cordoba International Film Music Festival (formerly International Film Music Festival City of Ubeda) at the end of June! At the Festival, guests and fans from all over the world gather to celebrate music composed for film and television in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The Festival will include several symphony concerts featuring last year's best scores and classic scores. http://festivaldecordoba.com
Additionally, Trevor just finished 2 TV movies/pilots, one called "Gotham" for director Francis Lawrence, who was recently announced as the director of the next "Hunger Games" film, as well as "666 Park Avenue," starring Vanessa Williams, Dave Annable, and Terry O'Quinn. He is among a select group of prolific composers who earned coveted guest spots in the festival, which runs from June 25 through July 1. Formerly held in Úbeda, this year marks the festival’s debut in its new home of Córdoba.
Morris will conduct his music live during two concerts – “The Best of the Year” on Friday, June 29, and “The Best of the Best,” on Saturday, June 30. He will also participate in a guest lecture for young musicians, a panel followed by a Q&A for fans, and an exclusive CD signing.
“I’m honored to be a part of this cultural event that celebrates what I love to create most, film music,” Morris said. “Having enjoyed the chance to work on several international-based projects in my career, Spain will be an ideal place to celebrate with colleagues and teach those eager to learn how to score for film and television.”
Otherwise known as the International Film Music Festival of Córdoba, the weeklong event has become the largest European conference for film music festivals, held for its former seven years in Úbeda, Spain. To date, this year’s guests will also include composers Mark Isham (ABC’s “Once Upon A Time”); Blake Neely (ABC’s “Pan Am”); Chris Young (New World Pictures’ “Hellraiser”); Roque Baños (Paramount Classics’ “The Machinist”); Lucas Vidal (Rogue’s “The Raven”); Carles Cases (Miramax’s “The Nameless”); and Richard Bellis (ABC’S miniseries “It”).
Morris is a multiple Emmy and Gemini Award winner for his work on Showtime’s “The Borgias,” “The Tudors,” and Starz Entertainment’s “The Pillars of the Earth.” He is once again scoring music for “The Borgias,” currently in its second season. His scores can also be heard on NBC’s “The Firm”; Relativity’s action-packed film, “Immortals”; Fox Atomic’s “The Hills Have Eyes”; Columbia and Warner Bros pictures’ “Something’s Gotta Give”; Anchor Bay’s “Beautiful Boy”; NBC’s “The Chase”; and CBS’ “Moonlight” and “Miami Medical,” among many others.
Upcoming projects for Morris include: Lionsgate’s “Fire with Fire,” starring Bruce Willis, Josh Duhamel, Vincent D’Onofrio, Rosario Dawson and 50 Cent; and Universal 1440 Entertainment’s “Death Race 3,” starring Danny Trejo and Ving Rhames.
