Getting a song placed on a hit TV show like Grey’s Anatomy can turn out to be a tipping point for an act (just ask Snow Patrol), while shows like The OC have played a significant role in the rise of acts like Death Cab for Cutie and The Shins.

Next week’s Soundtrack of Our Lives confab in Belfast will look how artists and songwriters are increasingly using TV shows, movies, computer games , DVDs, advertisements and various multimedia channels to promote their music.

Speakers will include Clare McKinney (business affairs at Domino Records), independent music publisher Annie Reed, Phil Bird (online music licensing company Ricall) and Oppenheimer’s Rocky O’Reilly (whose music has featured on Ugly Betty and in ad campaigns for Nike and Fuji)

The conference takes place next Monday (December 3) at the University of Ulster on York Street in Belfast at 5.30pm.
