(This award business is so nerv wrecking, I think we all lost a few pounds today...)
The 2015 Music and Sound Awards finalists have been announced with The Grand Budapest Hotel (Alexandre Desplat), The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (Howard Shore), Sherlock (David Arnold & Michael Price) and Utopia (Cristobal Tapia de Veer) among this year’s nominees.
Now in its fourth year, the Music and Sound Awards centre on the crafts of music composition, supervision, and sound design in the film, television advertising and gaming productions.
A panel of twenty-one industry figures picked out the nominees earlier this month. The winners will be announced at a ceremony on Wednesday 4th March at Café de Paris in London.

We've been super busy these last few weeks, it's about time we put up some news:
Cristo started working on one of the most exciting new TV-shows that will see the light of day this year!
'New' is actually just half true, the show is a remake co-produced by Channel 4 (UK) and - ta taaa - AMC (US). Basically, that means that Cristo makes his US-debut on a network that has produced killer shows like Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Mad Men and Hell on Wheels, just to name a few! Could we be any happier? Not at the moment, nope :)
While Cristo is producing waves of soundflames in his studio, Philipp is packing up his atelier in Berlin and prepares the big move to Scotland. May he and his family travel safe and sound!
Kim's challenge will be the hypothermic 1/2 marathon in Montreal next week. With temperatures of around -25C, let's hope it won't snow too much.
Last but not least, the Utopia 2 vinyls are getting pressed as we write this.
Get ready for Christmas, the new Utopia 2 double album is available at the Silva Screen store
(CD, FLAC, mp3) -
And fear not, green vinyls are coming next year!
Thanks for your support
