The Sundance Institute has unveiled the six musicians selected for the 2009 Sundance Institute Composers Lab running from July 15-29.

As part of their course, Kim Carroll, Chanda Dancy, Magda Giannikou, Lili Haydn, Christopher Lord and David Poe will create accompanying scores for scenes shot during the Feature Film Program’s Directors Lab held earlier this summer.

“During their time at the Lab, we create a place where the composers can focus on stretching their unique musical voice,” Peter Golub, director of the Sundance Institute Film Music Program, said.

“By pairing composers with film-makers, we initiate dialogue and explore the important role music plays in storytelling. We are thrilled that this year’s fellows bring a diversity of backgrounds and of genres, and their time at the Lab will certainly be a time of exploration and growth.”

This year’s creative advisors include George S Clinton (Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee, Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery); Osvaldo Golijov (Tetro, Youth Without Youth), Harry Gregson-Williams (The Chronicles Of Narnia: Prince Caspian, The Taking Of Pelham 1 2 3); and music supervisor and vice-president of film music at Lionsgate Tracy McKnight.
