SuperVISION: Guild Of Music Supervisors International Rendez-Vous

M for Montreal and Mundial Montréal are proud to partner with the Guild of Music Supervisors of Canada and the United States to expand the former Mx Lounge (2019-2020) and Department of Supervision (2021). Together, we are launching SuperVISION: Guilds of Music Supervisors International Rendez-Vous, co-presented by MPC (Music Publishers Canada) and APEM (Association des professionnels de l’édition musicale).

With a long-term vision in mind, this project not only celebrates the art of music supervision, but also creates a meeting point for music supervisors and industry movers and shakers. Therefore, SuperVISION: Guilds of Music Supervisors International Rendez-Vous will act as a vehicle for business opportunities for stakeholders in the music, audiovisual, film, television, advertising, and video game industries, among others.

This year, the inauguration of SuperVISION marks the renewal of the music supervision component at M for Montreal and Mundial Montréal. This creates an opportunity for more than 20 music supervisors from Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Scandinavia to come together through a series of private meetings, creating a space that allows current and aspiring members of the international guild to discuss current topics related to the industry. The gathering will also provide an opportunity for the development of strategies and activities that will promote the profession in the years to come.

Participants will be able to take part in several exclusive events, such as a mixer with publishers from MPC and APEM at the legendary Ursa Mtl venue during the M for Martha activity (by invitation only).

For the SuperVISION: The B2B Sessions networking event, ticketholders will have the chance to present their new music catalogs to music supervisors through one-on-one meetings.

Student Initiatives
In an effort to raise awareness around this profession that remains a mystery to many aspiring music professionals, the presentation “The Music Behind the Scenes, a Day in the Life of a Music Supervisor” will take place on November 14 at McGill University for students in the university’s music program who are enrolled in the course, “The Music Behind the Scenes”.

The Sound and Images masterclass organized by M for Montreal and Mundial Montréal in collaboration with the Center for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media and Technology (CIRMMT) will also be offered at CIRMMT on the evening of November 15. Featuring music supervisors, it will provide an inside look into the business of music supervision to students from various Québec universities, including Université de Montréal, Université de Sherbrooke, Concordia University, École de technologie supérieure, INRS, and Marianopolis College.

Students who take part in the masterclass will receive an EDU badge, which gives them access to all the M for Montreal and Mundial Montréal panels, workshops, as well as a 50% discount on the Melomaniac and Discovery badges.
