Forensic musicologist Peter Oxendale @Music Meets Film in Tallinn
In this year’s 8th instalment of Music Meets Film, primarily intended for composers and musicians aiming to create music for film, welcomes Peter Oxendale, forensic musicologist and copyright infringement specialist as one of the main speakers.
In discussion with Tom Player, Oxendale lays out a film composer’s dilemma with a relationship to a film’s temporary score, and how the attachment to it (Temp Love) leads to wide-spread plagiarism. We will hear music excerpts illustrating composers’ interpretations of original music, which venture into the realm of copyright infringement.
