Peer Raben Music Award nomination for "Through the Pane"!

GC Johnson of Acoustic Labs has been nominated for the Peer Raben Music Award from SoundTrack_Cologne in Koln, Germany for his score for "Through the Pane". The film will be presented at SoundTrack_Cologne on August 27, 2016.

Helmed and written by Dawn Westlake, the film is based on the memoir chapter of her father, Donald G. Westlake, about his acceptance of the death of her mother. Donald & Helen Gum Westlake were very happily married for 62 years.

GC Johnson's tracks were composed on the guitarviol (arpeggione), a six-stringed musical instrument, fretted and tuned like a guitar, but bowed like a cello, and thus similar to the bass viola da gamba. The body shape of the instrument is, however, more similar to a medieval fiddle than either the guitar or the bass viol. Earlier this year, Johnson's guitar and guitarviol scores were prominently featured in the Tom Tykwer film "A Hologram for the King", starring Tom Hanks.

"Through the Pane" was shot and edited by Pol Carrizo-Vilarroig of ImatgeBarcelona in the childhood home of director Dawn Westlake in Wheaton, Illinois, USA.
