AWARD, PEER RABEN MUSIC AWARD and SEE THE SOUND music documentary award.
SoundTrack_Cologne 11           · 19. – 23.11.20114 |
SEE THE SOUND                       · 19. – 26.11.2014
The juries of SoundTrack_Cologne have chosen their favorites. Winners are Marianna Liik (WDR FILMSCORE AWARD), Friso Hoekstra (EUROPEAN TALENT AWARD SOUNDDESIGN), Denis Barth (PEER RABEN MUSIC AWARD and “Europe in 8 Bits” by Javier Polo (SEE THE SOUND MUSIC DOCUMENTARY AWARD).
The Lifetime Achievement Award of SoundTrack_Cologne went to musical pioneer Eberhard Schoener. In a very personal laudatio, actor Friedrich von Thun honered the composer, conductor and boundary defier Schoener as a creative man, great musician and above all friend.
The prizes were awarded during the Award-Gala on Saturday, November 22nd at the Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum, Cologne.
WDR FILMSCORE AWARD goes to Mariann Liik, Estonia and the EUROPEAN TALENT AWARD in the category film score to Friso Hoekstra, Netherlands. An honourable mention was given to Serge van Lieshout, Netherlands.
The competition of SoundTrack_Cologne was held for the eleventh time. Task was, to create a new soundscape of music and sound for the short film “Contrast” by Carmen Büchner. Whereas it had been teams of sounddesigner and composer, this year saw more participants who worked both field on their own. The jury was comprised of film composers Jean-Michel Bernard (The Science of Sleep) and John Ottman (X-Men: Days of Future Past), trailer music expert Yoav Goren, Brigitte Schreiner, solo flute at WDR Funkhausorchester and Josef Steinbüchel of TORUS Sound Studio.
The WDR FILMSCORE AWARD goes to Marianna Liik. She is awarded an one-day recording session with the WDR Funkhausorchester Cologne.
“Marianna Liik finds a very creative and bold solution for an artistic film. She manages to tell a very surprising version of the story, creating another world by using an abstract musical approach.“
The EUROPEAN TALENT AWARD in the categorie SOUNDDESIGN goes to Friso Hoekstra, Netherlands. He is awarded two days of 5.1 cinema sound mixing at the TORUS film sound post production studio.
