Until that time competent education in this field of study had existed only in the USA. Now Vienna belongs worldwide to the few institutions where musicians can acquire knowledge and technical skills for a possible career in the field of Media-Composition. The University of Music and Performing Arts has planned an International Symposium on the subject "Filmmusic and Sounddesign" with internationally renowned participants, so that the newly established study course for MediaComposition and Applied Music would become known. Besides, the Symposium should give students the rare chance of experiencing outstanding personalities like David Raksin, Norman "Buddy" Baker, Randy Thom, Norbert Jurgen Schneider, Hans Ulrich Werner, Martin Homberg, Rolf Moser and Hansjorg Pauli. Prof. David Raksin was a student of Arnold Schonberg and the musical assistant of Charlie Chaplin ("Modern Times"). He composed the world-famous music for the film "Laura", which has been interpreted countless times by Frank Sinatra to Charlie Parker. Since 1952 he is Professor at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. Prof. Dr. Norman "Buddy" Baker was for 28 years composer/Musical Director at Walt Disney Productions and is also since several years Professor at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. Just the presence of these two great men is a specially lucky event, as they are living representatives of a great historical era in American film production.
