Party Down, BMI
by Karen Pecota

To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Sundance Composers Lab, BMI celebrated by hosting their sixth annual Snowball music showcase. Famed DJ Thomas Golubic set the stage to party down and composer/musician Rolfe Kent, with the use of his “Magnificent Howling Audience Score-Shop” introduced a surprise musical collaboration with the audience, filmmakers and composers. Kent loves to incorporate audience participation and loud music in his gigs so it was a natural to invite him to BMI’s Snowball bash at Sundance 2009. It was a first for the festival that surprised both the professionals and the party goers. The interactive experiment using live-image scoring was definitely a musical experience worth remembering.
