Close Your Eyes, a sci-fi suspense film recently selected for the Boston Science Fiction Film Festival, is a piece about Delaney, an ex-codebreaker roped into a unique mission to crack a valuable frequency embedded in an unknown alien signal. It was a pleasure working with Director Tom Phillips on the score for this film, which has been nominated for “Best Composition” at the South Australian Screen Awards.
I am pleased to announce my score for Aurora has been nominated for “Best Music for a Short Film” at this year’s Screen Awards presented by APRA (Australian Performing Rights Association) in conjunction with the Australian Guild of Screen Composers (AGSC).

Not that long ago I was asked to do make a quick music track for a short doco that Urtext Films were putting together. I was told the video was put together rather quickly, and they wanted a simple underscore, possibly in the form of a solo instrument or two to accompany the visuals and dialogue. Viewing and underscoring this video brought about a few thoughts regarding the creative process, new technology, and ideas on the ‘human element’ that I would like to share in this blog entry.
This is a trailer I provided the music for recently. It is currently a staff-picked video on Vimeo, and has received over 30,000 views and counting! It was fantastic to collaborate with the director Victoria Cocks on this project.
Over 300 people turned up for the premier at Piccadilly Cinema, August the 1st, 2011! It was a fantastic night, and the film was received well among all those who came. It was also fantastic to finally meet those members of the crew and cast who’s work I had been admiring during the composition and production of the score!
Among the 4 nominations “Toot Toot” received at the South Australian Screen Awards, Chris brought home “Best Composition” with a prize donated by Music SA. He was also nominated for “Best Score” at the St Kilda Film Festival in Melbourne this month, where Cleland Jones won “Best Achievement in Editing” for the same film.
