Great news! At a ceremony on Monday night in Melbourne my score for Tiger Dynasty was awarded ‘Best Music for a Documentary’ at the 2012 Australian Screen Music Awards. It’s a huge honour and part of the score was performed live on the night by Paul Grabowsky’s ensemble which was also a thrill.Congrats to all the other nominees and winners! Here’s a complete list – There’s some amazing names here….
Tiger Dynasty has just received a nomination for ‘Best Music for a Documentary’ at this year’s Australian Screen Music Awards. I had my fingers crossed for this one too…

This is the highest film honours in the country awarded by the president of India. I’m very proud of this film – Congratulations to Nalla and the team
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.”
“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
