We also just picked up First Prize at Italy’s Sondrino Film Festival where the Jury made special mention of the score…

“…The jury would also like to point out the high-quality of the soundtrack”

Nice!

Surviving Georgia score reviewed by Film, Music and Media

March 22, 2012

Film, Music and Media

Film, Music and Media have just reviewed my score for Surviving Georgia. It’s a great review too! Here are a couple of quotes:

“What Aplin has done is really make something rather unique, flavorful and just plain wonderful.”

and

“Within its simplicity, small sounds and short running time it was able to make a large lasting impression on me. It’s hard to explain it and with music that’s usually the case. You can’t really express it in writing, you just need to listen to it for yourself…So go on, go experience something new”.

Pretty happy with that. Listen to the score here
