BASCA opens events to non-members

By | Published on Thursday 24 March 2011


The British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors has announced that it will opens up its events to non-members over the next eight months, the first of which is entitled ‘Soundalikes, Parody and Plagiarism’ and will take place on 31 Mar.

On the panel will be Neil Innes (who amongst many things was, of course, responsible for Beatles parody The Rutles), ‘Spitting Image’ writer Philip Pope, Bath Spa University’s Joe Bennett and TV composer Alan Parker, who will discuss the perils of writing ‘soundalike’ music for TV, advertising and film productions.

The seminar will take place in the PRS For Music HQ in London, and will cost non-members £30. If you would like to attend, email
