As if we weren’t excited enough for SXSW (from our own awesome parties to The Boss’ keynote address to all of the films and shows in between), the festival keeps announcing more and more events to lure us to Austin.
Most recently, BMI just stated that its Vice President of Film/TV Relations, Doreen Ringer Ross, will co-host a panel about music in film, television and gaming with Devo’s co-founder and frontman Mark Mothersbaugh. The session will take place Tuesday, March 13 from 11 a.m. until noon at the Austin Convention Center, Room 16AB, and will be open to festival badge holders.
Outside of Devo, Mothersbaugh is an award-winning composer for films, TV shows and commercials, having penned the scores to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic, National Geographic’s Born to Be Wild, Nickelodeon’s Rugrats and many others. This year, Mothersbaugh’s music will also appear in 21 Jump Street, Safe, and Hotel Transylvania.
We kind of hope Mothersbaugh will wear an energy dome to the conference.
