Descrição

Portugal's first PRO Music Conference and Showcase Festival, Westway LAB, was starting by A Oficina in Guimarães, the first capital city of Portugal, in partnership with AMAEI, the Portuguese Independent Music Trade Association, in 2014. It was the first Portuguese Festival proactively participating in the ETEP - Eurosonic European Talent Exchange Programme, and is thus an instrumental step in the internationalization of new Portuguese Artists and music. Going on to its 6th edition in 2019, Westway LAB's PRO conference was a dynamic meeting with key panels along three strands of PRO programming: Westway PRO, WHY Portugal Event, and INES - Innovation Network of European Showcases. More than 250 delegates attending our 2018 edition, held at the Vila Flor Palace in Guimarães, Portugal.

Your personal data, including your name, company and email address, will be collected by Westway LAB via Eventbrite solely for the purposes of an effective professional registration as well as conference networking, and may be shared with other registered delegates whether directly or via a conference database or mobile application.

ENGLISH PROGRAMME BELOW

WESTWAY LAB - Conferências PRO 2019 - PROGRAMA

Para esta 6ª edição do Westway LAB, os 3 eixos das conferências profissionais do Westway LAB Festival & Conference, o Westway PRO, as INES Sessions e o WHY Portugal Event são complementados, em 2019, com a adição do Westway LAB Lounge, um networking lounge permanente que assegura a todos os delegados registrados no Westway LAB, para além das sessões e painéis habituais, um ambiente propício à de partilha de conhecimentos profissionais e fomento de contactos para futuros negócios internacionais da música gravada e música ao vivo, representação e contratação de artistas, bem como as sincronizações audio-visuais que têm feito parte do eco-sistema do Westway LAB desde a sua primeira edição em 2014.

Aos 3 eixos já habituais das conferências Westway PRO, INES e WHY Portugal, a parceria com a AMAEI, Associação de Músicos Artistas e Editoras Independentes aporta em 2019 a inclusão no Westway LAB de mais um projecto Europeu, o Europe in Synch, ao abrigo das ações preparatórias “Music Moves Europe” (Europa Criativa).

Mais, a parceria com a Fundação GDA vem afirmar também este ano a dedicação da Fundação GDA na abertura de novos horizontes para os artistas portugueses: se o ano passado anunciaram, dentro do campo de acção cultural da Fundação GDA, um novo programa de apoio a showcases, este ano apresentam duas novas plataformas tecnológicas que visam fomentar a circulação dos artistas nacionais. Estas novidades serão partilhadas no dia de encerramento do Westway PRO, que este ano conta também, para além do habitual keynote speaker internacional, com um keynote nacional muito especial, ainda por anunciar.

Assim, os 4 eixos da 6ª edição do Westway PRO são:

  • Westway PRO: capacitação profissional geral para artistas e profissionais

  • INES Sessions: inovação digital e assuntos Europeus

  • WHY Portugal Event: internacionalização da música portuguesa

  • Europe in Synch: sincronizações audio-visuais

A parte da manhã é dedicada à apresentação de “catalisadores” do mundo do cinema e publicidade que vêm explicar os seus workflows a 10 participantes do mundo da música: compositores, labels, publishers.

Para além de ser uma jornada informativa verdadeiramente capacitadora, tanto para o lado do cinema e publicidade como para os jovens profissionais do mundo da música, é uma abordagem práctica e verdadeiramente Europeia com o objectivo de colocar e fazer circular mais música Europeia em filmes e publicidade que obteve o apoio do Europa Criativa através do fundo para ações preparatórias “Music Moves Europe”.

11:00 WHY Portugal Event: Showcase Festivals & Conferences Workshop: How to prepare yourself!

Palácio Vila Flor - Workshop Room S3


Actuar num showcase festival não é de todo uma experiência que se assemelhe a um concerto normal. Se por um lado requer mais um detalhada preparação de fundo, b2b, trabalho de casa dedicado ao usufruto dos contactos com o público de profissionais da música aos quais queremos fazer chegar a música dos nossos artistas, por outro lado há quer ser mais ágil, leve, e adaptável possível no que toca à logística do espectáculo em si: temos que nos apresentar da forma mais simples, sensata e segura, assegurando o interesse desse público profissional logo nos primeiros minutos de uma actuação “showcase”...


11:30 INES 3 - Take a Stand! - Palácio Vila Flor - Conference Room S2


Fruzsina Szép é a directora do festival Lollapalooza Berlin e integra a Direcção da Associação de Festivais Yourope. Antes, foi directora artística do festival Sziget, na Hungria.

12:00 WESTWAY PRO: Blurred LInes: where does composition end and production start these days?

Palácio Vila Flor - Conference Room S4


Nunca a produção musical esteve tão ligada à própria composição como nos dias de hoje: muitas vezes os dois processos criativos confundem-se, ao decorrer em simultâneo: beats tornam-se músicas instrumentais que se assumem como a base de obras completas dos mais variados estilos musicais. Os processos misturam-se cada vez mais… para não falar do sampling, das influências que fluem quase livremente… e que por vezes nos levam, de forma consciente, subconsciente, ou só inconscientemente ao plágio? Com a participação de Ricardo Ferreira (BLIM Records / AMAEI), Rui Ribeiro e outros compositores / produtores TBC.

WESTWAY LAB - PRO Conferences 2019 - PROGRAMME


For the upcoming 6th edition of Westway LAB, Portugal’s first showcase festival & conference expands its three main conference streams, Westway PRO, INES Sessions and the WHY Portugal Event through the addition of a central Westway LAB Lounge, a permanent networking lounge open throughout the event, offering registered delegates a space dedicated to their formal & informal networking, besides the conferences, roundtables and panels. An environment that constitutes another step forward, as the LAB monicker does not apply exclusively to the Artist Residencies: Westway is also a LABoratory for new projects, new ideias, new partnerships and new horizons. From Westway LAB’s first edition, back in 2014, to the present, this has always been an intrinsic part of the Westway DNA.


As such, in addition to the above-mentioned three conference streams, the Westway PRO, INES PRO e WHY Portugal Event, the on-going partnership with AMAEI, the Portuguese Independent Music Trade Association brings to Guimarães a new European project, Europe in Synch: a Music Moves Europe preparatory action under the “Training of Young Professionals” call. It is also fitting in that the idea for the project was born at Westway LAB, precisely two years ago.


Furthermore, the partnership with the GDA Foundation also affirms, this year, the dedication of the GDA Foundation in utilizing technologies as tools for music circulation. The GDA panel will thus present us with two Portuguese home-grown platforms seeking new solutions to this age-old challenge: how to tour more. Finally, through a new partnership with Audiogest, the phonogram producers society, we are happy to feature a Portuguese Keynote speaker and “State of the Art of the Portuguese Industry” roundtable, as well as host not just the second edition of the WHY Portugal Event, run by Portugal’s export office for music, but also a meeting of EMEE - European Music Exporters Exchange, bringing 28 European Export Offices to Portugal.

12:00 - 18:00

Conference Room S3


Wednesday April 10th


EUROPE in SYNCH Workshop (Sign-Up Only)

10:00 - 16:00

Conference Room S3


Musical supervisors Markus Linde (Thag's Agent, Hamburg) and Nis Bogvad (Copenhagen Film Music) will promote the European project "Europe in Synch" on the first day of Westway LAB 2019 in partnership with AMAEI, the Portuguese Independent Music Trade Association. The project aims to address the general lack of knowledge with regards to synchronizations, aimed at young music professionals: the licensing of musical works for audio-visual programs of cinema or advertising. The morning part is dedicated to the presentation of "catalysts" from the world of cinema and advertising that come to explain their workflows to 10 participants from the world of music: composers, labels, publishers. Each one exposes their way of working, both on the side of cinema and advertising as on the side of music. In the afternoon, they present concrete projects and / or recent case studies to demonstrate in practice how to place music in movies. In addition to being a truly empowering information journey, both for the cinema and advertising side and for the young professionals from the music world, it is a practical and truly European approach with the aim of placing and circulating more European music in films and advertising, which won the support of Creative Europe through the preparatory action fund "Music Moves Europe".


Places are limited. Registration for the participation in the Europe in Synch Workshop will take place in the second half of March and will be announced by AMAEI and the new upcoming website of the Europe in Synch project.

Thursday April 11th


10:00 WESTWAY PRO: Music Supervision in the US - Palácio Vila Flor - Conference Room S4


In a developed market such as the US, large advertising agencies not only know and recognize the importance of well-trained music supervision, but also hire music supervisors to integrate their own teams full-time. Lisa Hresko of A2IM (AMAEI's North American counterpart) comes to Westway LAB to introduce us to Dan Burt (J Walther Thompson) and Eric Johnson (McCann) aka DJ Bunny Ears ...!



10:00 INES 2 - Digital Royalty & Rights Accounting - Palácio Vila Flor - Room S2


Big data, little money? The digital eco-system presents increasing challenges in the proper accounting and reporting of digital royalties, copyright and related rights to artists, authors-composers and publishers. Chris Chambers presents Backbeat: a functional solution for labels and publishers that can help with all this number crunching in the new era of micro-payments. It even speaks CWR!



11:00 WHY Portugal Event: Showcase Festivals & Conferences Workshop: How to prepare yourself!

Palácio Vila Flor - Workshop Room S3


Playing a showcase festival is not at all an experience that resembles a normal concert performance. If on one hand it requires detailed background preparation, b2b thinking, and hours of homework dedicated to the usefulness of the contacts potentially made with the audience of music professionals to whom we want to get our artists’ music, on the other hand there is the need to be technically more agile, travel light, and be as adaptable as possible with regard to the logistics of the show itself: we have to present ourselves in the simplest, most sensible and secure way, ensuring that we grab the interest of this professional audience in the first minutes of a showcase performance ...



11:30 INES 3 - Take a Stand! - Palácio Vila Flor - Conference Room S2


Fruzsina Szép is the director of the Lollapalooza Berlin Festival and is part of the Directorate of the Association of Yourope Festivals. Before, she was artistic director of the Sziget festival in Hungary. She also leads the "Take a Stand!" Project for all Europeans and human beings who believe in peace, inclusion and dialogue. www.take-a-stand.eu



12:00 WESTWAY PRO: Blurred LInes: where does composition end and production start these days?

Palácio Vila Flor - Conference Room S4


Music production has never been so closely linked to the composition process itself as it is today: the two creative processes are often confused in the simultaneous course of a session: “beats” become instrumental backing songs that often become the basis of complete works of the most varied styles. The processes are therefore mixing more and more ... not to mention related complex issues like sampling, or the influences that flow almost freely in the studios ... and that sometimes lead us, consciously, subconsciously, or only unconsciously to plagiarism? With the participation of Ricardo Ferreira (BLIM Records / AMAEI), composer Rui Ribeiro and a special international guest.
