FILMIC SOUNDTRACK AWARDS 2017

SoundtrackAwards.jpg

2017 took it’s time to warm up that’s for sure but it did get there and of course there was the later/new year scores pushed through in time for the awards season. The category which seemed to ‘swell’ in size was TV which is hardly surprising given the cross platform ways you can watch the many channels on offer. My choices were clear cut this year with the only soul searching being between my number 1 and 2 Best Scores of the year, this did produce a lot of dithering and re-listening. Both scores painted ‘grand’ worlds and both composers reached high levels of opulence to fill the canvases. In the end the decision [partly because it was sooooo close I just had to make a decision] went to Daniel Pemberton’s score because he also wove in a twisted element to fine tune the madness of the films story. Well done Mr. Pemberton

The votes below were compiled for the International Film Music Critics Association who will be releasing the the list of nominations February 8th.
