Sundance Institute and Skywalker Sound have announced the directors and composers selected for the second of two Sundance Institute Music and Sound Design Labs at Skywalker Sound.

The second Music and Sound Design Labs will take place at the Skywalker Ranch in northern California and is one of 15 residential Labs Sundance Institute will host this year.

The Lab is a joint initiative of the Institute’s Film Music Program and Documentary Film Program in which composers, sound designers and directors explore the collaborative process of designing a soundtrack for film.

Fellows also participate in workshops and creative exercises under the guidance of creative advisors including composers Todd Boekelheide and Miriam Cutler, re-recording mixer Lora Hirschberg and editor Vivien Hillgrove.

The Composers Lab for narrative films took place in July and was hosted by the Film Music Program and Feature Film Program. 

In addition to the Music and Sound Design Labs, the Institute offers labs throughout the year and around the world for independent directors, screenwriters, documentary editors, composers, playwrights, producers and New Frontier artists.

Artists and projects selected for the 2014 Sundance Institute Music and Sound Design Lab – Documentary, set to run from September 15-23, are: Marc Silver for 3 1/2 Minutes; Mike Day for The Island And The Whales; Anna Sandilands and Ewan McNicol for Uncertain; Bill Ross and Turner Ross for Western.

Selected composers are: Kent Spnarling, Linda Oh, Ross Garren and Sage Lewis.

The Sundance Institute Film Music Program is supported by BMI, Time Warner Foundation, The Film Music Foundation, and Republic Records.
