Event Summary

This seminar – a collaboration between PCAM (The Society for Producers and Composers of Applied Music), the PRS Members’ Fund and PRS for Music - will address the effects such stresses have on the mental wellbeing of composers in the field.

Event Description

The world of media composers offers immense creative rewards, yet also exacts a psychological toll through distinct pressures:

· Tight budgets and inconsistent workflows can stir profound financial anxiety.

· Continual judgment of one’s artistic output can demoralise.

· Rapid technological disruptions can evoke uncertainty about the future.

· Long, isolated hours tend to compound self-criticism, and the concentrated influence of major ad agencies, which commission work, can intimidate composers.

This seminar – a collaboration between PCAM (The Society for Producers and Composers of Applied Music), the PRS Members’ Fund and PRS for Music – will address the effects such stresses have on the mental wellbeing of composers in the field.

Through presentations, a panel, and open discussion, we will build understanding of these challenges and share proven techniques for maintaining perspective, personal value, and creativity amidst the turbulence. There will be an opportunity to hear about the various resources and support available.

Expect to leave with a toolbox of practices to withstand the psychological strains; connect with a compassionate community, and renew appreciation for the many positive dimensions of your craft.

Together, we can stay grounded while coping with the mental health impact of composing for media.
