The LA Composer Salons present a casual opportunity for professional music creators to interact and "talk musical shop" with other professional music creators. The Salons happen every three months, always on a Sunday afternoon. They are small in size (around seventy attendees, all working musicians and composers) and happen in the very comfortable environment of a private Venice recording studio.

Throughout the last thirteen years and fifty-three Salons, we've featured over 180 LA composers from all stylistic backgrounds, united only in their quest for musical excellence. Some are better known, like Thomas Newman, Jon Hassell, Trent Reznor, Mort Subotnick, Harry Gregson-Williams, Anne LeBaron, James Newton Howard, William Kraft, Steven Stucky, Billy Childs, Javier Navarrete, Stephen Paulus, Christopher Young, Bill Holman, Randy Newman, Patrick Leonard, etc., others aren't quite as famous, but just as relevant and interesting.

American Composers Forum LA workshop: Dutch composer duo, Rob van Rijswijk and Jeroen Strijbos, were in the city to scout locations for their outdoor environmental installation piece, “Walk With Me,” for the upcoming CicLAvia in March, and conduct an informative preliminary workshop co-sponsored by ACFLA with Community Arts Resources LA and CicLAvia. Their workshop consisted of an overview of their fascinating experiential works and a walk through Japantown where they had installed a mini version of “Walk With Me” (requiring a free cell app). Van Rijswijk/Strijbos will be back in late January/early February and will conduct a composer’s salon and workshop sponsored by ACFLA. Read all about this project
