Unlocking Unique Percussion Textures in Film Scoring

Featuring: Abby Savell

On October 30, 2022, the ASA was pleased to welcome Abby Savell from LA Percussion Rentals for an in-person workshop. This hybrid workshop explored the possibilities of acoustic percussion instruments and how to develop a unique palette of sounds for recording. Abby brought several instruments from the LA Percussion Rental warehouse and performed live demos. Abby took us through the work of some of the most famous and innovative percussionists in the field, including the legendary Emil Richards, and broke down their collaborative process with the top TV/film/game composers. She also talked about the philosophy behind enhancing the feel of what’s on screen rather than focusing on the setting or culture.
