Gary Downing (Sync and composer rep at Leland Originals)
Welcome to the Behind the Business podcast. A new music business focused podcast where I chat with an eclectic mix of people from the music business about them, what they do and why they do it.
This episodes chat is with Gary Downing MD of Leland Originals. Leland Originals is the sister company to Abi Leland's Music supervision business and they represent a growing roster of composers who work across all areas of the media industries.
Recent projects that the Leland Originals roster have worked on includes: Tom Hodges co-score for McMafia for the BBC/Amazon and Benjamin Woodgates arrangement and orchestration of the live rescoring of Jonny Greenwood’s score to 'A Phantom Thread' for the European Film Premiere amongst many other things.
Gary's background is in music publishing and synchronisation. He spent time at Warner Chappell, Chrysalis Music, Music Sales and Caroline as well as running his own sync representation agency.
If you want to learn more about publishing and sync this is the one to listen to.
