LOS ANGELES--()--For the first time, film and television music professionals who were unable to travel to Los Angeles to attend the 5th annual The Hollywood Reporter/Billboard Film & TV Music Conference have the opportunity to hear from many of the keynote speakers and panelists by downloading the APM Film & TV Music Podcast at www.apmmusic.com/musiccon

The APM Film & TV Music Podcast series explores the business of film and television music production and licensing through exclusive interviews with video game, film and television music supervisors, composers and editors, and has become the leading podcast series on the subject with tens of thousands of listeners.

We are excited to be extending the reach of our conference through emerging media, said Tamara Conniff, Executive Editor at Billboard. APM has done a tremendous job producing and distributing a podcast designed specifically for film and television music professionals and we are honored to be distributing exclusive one-on-one interviews with this year's conference panelists to their audience.

APM Music (http://www.apmmusic.com) , the largest provider of music for use in film, television, radio, video games and new media production, has produced a series of episodes from the conference which feature one-on-one interviews with composer Danny Elfman, composer Terence Blanchard, music supervisor Maureen Crowe, Fox Music President Robert Kraft, agent Laura Engel, recording artist Olivia Newton-John, Universal Music Mobile VP Rio Caraeff, composer Jesper Kyd, Universal Music Publishing VP Film & TV Music Brian Lambert, Grey Worldwide SVP of Music Josh Rabinowitz, director Tom Tykwer and many others. The interviews were conducted by Billboard's Tamara Conniff (Executive Editor) and The Hollywood Reporter's Jeff Bond (Contributing Writer), Kevin Cassidy (Features Editor), Ada Guerin (Reporter), and Paula Parisi (Editorial Director, Features).

When we first started The Film & TV Music Podcast Series earlier this year, our vision was to make the viewpoints and ideas of some of the most respected names in the film and television music industry easily accessible, on demand, said Adam Taylor, President of APM. By capturing the knowledge and experience these experts have to share with film and TV music professionals, we hope to contribute positively to the industry in giving others the chance to share their expertise.
