As artists living and working in Los Angeles, we are committed to making our work affordable and accessible to audiences of all incomes from diverse communities and neighborhoods. That’s why our ticket prices are always affordable and you’ll find us performing in both concert halls and casual spaces. We always want our audience to feel welcome.

“What I appreciate about what Helix Collective does is they're bridging that divide and bringing creatives together. It's almost like it's the Helix Collective house and all creatives are welcome. So that's why I donate. I donate because I want to be a part of that.”

“Helix Collective's programming fills a major gap in the local musical landscape. With the Live Film Score Festival and L.A. Stories, Helix provides a platform for artists to tell their unique stories through music, film, and spoken word - all while managing to keep concerts affordable and accessible to a diverse audience.”

Supporting Artists

Los Angeles Live Score Film Festival 

Our annual live score-to-screen film festival takes open submissions from film composers at all levels of their career from aspiring to established composers. The opportunity to have their scores performed live by Helix Collective at the screening provides them with a platform to share their work with the film community and broaden the audience for their music. Helix works with film schools to curate short films for the festival, providing an invaluable opportunity for young directors and a learning experience in collaboration on music for their film.

Film Music Connect

Co-produced by SAGindie and Helix Collective, this workshop provides a valuable learning experience for film directors and composers to work together in a collaborative setting. Helix Collective guides filmmakers and composers through the process of selecting a collaborator, communicating during the composition process through the final recording. Filmmakers and composers are provided with a soundtrack recorded by Helix Collective for use in their films.

“Working with Helix Collective was an amazing experience. They gave me a choice of fantastic composers and I ended up with a score that was better than anything I could have imagined.  I want to make another film as soon as possible just so I can work with the team over there again.”

Mandy Fabian

director, 2020 Film Music Connect Participant
“The Film Music Connect workshop was really invaluable for finding the tools to effectively communicate with our composer.”

"One of the most informative and helpful seminars I’ve ever attended online. The lessons learned were invaluable."

Highlighting New Works by Diverse Composers

Our concerts feature aspiring and established film, music, and television composers, female composers, and composers from diverse backgrounds. These unique live music events provide a platform and highlight composers who would otherwise rarely have the opportunity to have their original work heard on the concert stage. Concerts include Women Composers in Media, Pulling Back the Curtain (featuring soundtrack team members), and SPOTLIGHT! with the Composers Diversity Collective.
