Composer Larry Groupé to give lecture at Jacobs

Composer Larry Groupé will give a lecture Oct. 14, presented by the Jacobs School of Music and the Center for Electronic and Computer Music.

The lecture will begin at 7 p.m. in the Simon Music Center’s Sweeney Lecture Hall.

Groupé will play clips from his scores for students and lecture attendees while explaining his creative process behind composing, according to a press release from Jacobs.

In addition, Groupé will discuss the differences between composing for film and TV, the technical aspects of composing and the current conditions of the field.

Groupé has won two Emmy Awards for his work in TV documentaries “Residue” and “Jonas Salk: Personally Speaking.” He also received an Emmy nomination for his work on the ABC series “Line of Fire.”

Outside of TV, Groupé has also worked on films like the Academy Award-nominated political drama “The Contender” and, more recently, the 2011 film “Straw Dogs.”

Groupé has also worked in popular music, composing songs for the rock group Yes and its “Symphonic Tour of the World.”
