ELECTRONIC ARTS Worldwide Executive For Music STEVE SCHNUR was the guest speaker for SOURCE -- an organization of women executives in NASHVILLE's music industry -- at its monthly members luncheon at ASCAP YESTERDAY.
SCHNUR told the gather that he has moved the bulk of the gaming company's video scoring work to town in recent years, noting his goal is to put professional musicians to work.
“Video game scoring involves composing and recording original work, often orchestral, and utilizing dozens of musicians,” he explained. “I chose NASHVILLE because No. 1, the musicianship is as good as it gets. The city is not about just banjos and fiddles, it’s cellists and violinists and brass are equal to what I find in L.A. and LONDON.”
