ASCAP 100: Why We Create Music Film Celebrates Songwriters and Composers

ASCAP has commissioned a new short film in honor of its 100th birthday, Why We , which celebrates and provides an intimate look into the , minds and musical gifts of some of today’s top and composers. Combining footage from more than 10 separate film shoots around the country with 15 ascap members, the film explores the meaning and power of music as expressed by the music creators themselves. In addition, from shoot to shoot an unprecedented collaborative musical composition was built as each was filmed adding their own musical “voice” to the score. Similar to ’s founding members of 1914, the modern day group captured in the film represents a diverse group of accomplished songwriters and composers. The film, directed by /composer Michael Marantz, features members who have been recognized by Pulitzer Prizes, Grammys, Emmys, Oscars and Dove – brought together for a creative cause – something that only an organization like the American Society of Composers, (ASCAP) could make possible.

The film is the centerpiece of the ASCAP100.com site’s recently launched 100 Years, 100 Days campaign, which Billboard called “a slick, highly produced new website.” Each day leading up to ASCAP’s February 13th birthday, the site’s interactive timeline unveils a new year’s spotlight with photographs, facts and important milestones that tell ASCAP’s – and America’s – musical story in an exciting new way.
