Get Your Music Heard and Evaluated by Top Music Supervisors

Sync Music Listening Sessions are a great new way for you to get your music heard and get essential feedback from top music supervisors in TV, film, video games, ads, trailers, brands, apps, and the Internet.  Here’s how it works.

  1.  Every week, we hold a two-hour online listening session with a top music supervisor that’s strictly limited to twenty registrants. We do this to make sure all participants get heard, get to interact and get their music evaluated.
  2. Every participant will submit a song for evaluation to us for listening during the session by the guest music supervisor.
  3. Every participant will get a video archive of the session, and all Listening Session playlists will be posted on the SyncSummit website and promoted to our 40,000 person mailing list.

Every Sync Music Listening Session get your music directly into the ears of a music supervisor who’ll get you valuable feedback – and you’ll make a valuable new connection.

In these sessions, you get the advice from and connection to key decision makers will give you the invaluable feedback you can use to fine-tune your approach to music supervisors and their projects.

September 2019 LISTENING SESSIONS


September 29: MOCEAN VP, MUSIC, MUSIC SUPERVISOR SANAZ LAVAEDIAN

As VP of Music at Los Angeles-based entertainment agency MOCEANSanaz Lavaedian has never had a doubt in her mind that music supervision is exactly where she wants to be. 

An LA native, Sanaz has always been fascinated by the relationship between music and visual media; particularly the make-or-break role that a song can have on a movie trailer. .So it was only natural that upon graduating from UCLA, Sanaz set out to pursue music supervision for film, television, and theatrical marketing.

Her journey began as a music coordinator at SynchroniCity, and from there, she soon moved on to join Reel Music under the direction of Robin Urdang. Urdang became a true mentor to Sanaz, guiding her through notable projects such as ABC’s Brothers & Sisters, FOX’s The Good Guys, USA’s Burn NoticeRabbit HolePirahna 3DL!fe HappensThe Oranges and 2011’s critically acclaimed indie hit Beginners.

In 2010, when Sanaz met music supervisor and DJ extraordinaire Patrick Belton, there was instant chemistry. The two knew that with their shared passion for music in media, together they could create something unique. With that, Off The Record Music Supervision was formed, where Sanaz and Patrick would go on to supervise several major films.

At MOCEAN, Sanaz has had the privilege to oversee music for major theatrical campaigns (including Mad MaxAvengersGuardians of the GalaxyDeadpool,The Shape of Water and thousands of others) in addition to serving the agency’s broadcast, TV/streaming, home entertainment, and consumer branding divisions.

If you ask her what she’s most excited about for the future, she’ll tell you with a sly smile, “I’d LOVE to share with you, but I’m under a strict NDA…”
