8/28/2016 Reeperbahn Festival and Conference 2016



SynchAudio has announced it will be returning to Hamburg, Germany to attend the Reeperbahn

Festival and Conference 2016. “We are excited to be attending Reeperbahn for our third year

in a row. It has become one of SynchAudio’s priority annual business events and we love

participating,” says CEO, Farinoush Mostaghimi. Reeperbahn will be held September 21st

to 24th. The Reeperbahn Festival will present more than 700 events spanning a range of

genres in locations around Hamburg’s Reeperbahn district. Since its debut in 2006, the

RBF has grown to become one of the most important meeting places for the global music

industry; and as Germany’s largest club festival, it boasts a broad spectrum of emerging

artists. The Reeperbahn Festival conference programme is designed for professionals active

in the music and creative digital industries and features knowledge sharing sessions,

showcases, networking events, and awards ceremonies.

Things Are Getting Strange At #RBF2016!

This year SynchAudio is presenting Picture Music Company’s CEO and renowned award-

winning music supervisor Nora Felder, whose long list of projects over the years include

the very current worldwide Netflix hit series Stranger Things. Written, produced and

directed by the Duffer Brothers, the series stars Winona Ryder, Mathew Modine, and

an on-the-rise ensemble of remarkably talented child actors. The most talked about

young rising star, Millie Bobby Brown, brags to the press about their number one

Netflix series by stating: “This (Stranger Things) nostalgic nod to 1980s sci-fi/horror

classics pays homage to ‘ET’, ‘Poltergiest’, and the novels of Stephen King.” The Duffer

Brothers almost make “nostalgia” a character in the series. As critics around the world

agree, a strong part of that character is the music which includes the hypnotic main

title opening each episode, and its mesmerizing 80’s induced synth score laced

throughout the story.

The series' music is composed by spectacular Austin electronic artists /composers known

as Survive. The recently released score soundtrack album climbed right away to the number

2 spot on the iTunes album charts. Songs carefully placed in key moments throughout the

series include artists such as The Clash, Jefferson Airplane, Joy Division, Toto, The Seeds,

The Bangles, Regan Youth, Foreigner, Peter Gabriel, Joy Division, New Order, Tangerine

Dream, Echo & The Bunny Men, Corey Hart, Dolly Parton, and Moby. Felder’s credits also

include music supervision for the hit Showtime series Californication, Ray Donovan and

Roadies; Unforgettable for A&E; The Night Shift for NBC; Powers for Sony PlayStation

and many more.

Nora Felder’s tenure in music began with her booking showcases and events for such

artists as the Cure and INXS at a New York City downtown club. Later she stepped into

the role of VP of production for legendary music producer, Phil Ramone, working on

recording projects for artists Paul Simon, Sinead O'Connor, Barbra Streisand, Slash,

and Iggy Pop. Nora has won the Best Music Supervision award, and three nominations

at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards; she has four nominations at The Guild of

Music Supervisors Awards, and a nomination for Women In Music’s first Women in

Sync Awards 2016.

Panels Scheduled at Reeperbahn 2016

Nora Felder will be appearing at three Reeperbahn sessions as a guest panelist, including:

"The SuperMusicSupervisor Session", a female only session discussing music supervision

trends on both sides of the Atlantic. This session is scheduled for Sep 22 at 2.45pm -

3.45pm at Salon Schmidt (Schmidt Theatre). Moderating this panel will be Imagem’s

Natasha Baldwin. Another session follows on September 22, 5pm - 6pm at Suite 716,

Arcotel Onyx, titled “A Real Horror Story: What can go wrong in the world of synch, and

how to avoid it.” This session will be moderated by Vikram Gudi of Elephant Music (UK).

SynchAudio founder and creative director Farinoush Mostaghimi will be alongside Nora

for the Matchmaking Session “Meet the Music Supervisors”, which is being held at the

Wiener Bistro networking area on Sept. 23rd from 1pm-3pm. SynchAudio’s presence at

Reeperbahn 2016 will include attending artist showcases seeking out new music and artists.

SynchAudio’s primary focus is music licensing and synchronization. It is proud of its growing

roster of highly talented musicians, composers and producers.
