Emerging Composer at the Apulia Sountrack Awards

I was selected as one of the Emerging Composers at the Apulia Soundtrack Awards 2023! The festival celebrates film music, different generations of film composers and their work.

And this involves 3 of my soundtracks.

Skoraj polnoč / Almost Midnight is directed by Jan Fabris, produced with Elephant Art Film Production, amazing camera work (a one-take film!) by Vida Habjanič. Sound mixed by Julij Zornik.

Wheel of Life is a creative tandem with Tamara Maksimovic and produced in Bosnia and Herzegovina with AEON Production.

And one more Slovenian film is The Disappearance of Evelin Gale directed by Jan Fabris and also produced with Elephant Art Film Production. This is a very recent film (hence, unlike the other two fragments, you don’t see the actual scene in the video). This film features a great trio of actors: Miha Rodman, Lara Fortuna and Lea Mihevc.

The Music of Resurfacing

I am telling a (very condensed) story of an unusual soundtrack where I had to emulate being a psychedelic rock band and write for an electric guitar. Short film Spominjanje / Resurfacing was produced in Slovenia, written and directed by Jan Fabris. The sound mix of the film was done by the renowned Slovenian sound designer Julij Zornik.

Resurfacing Short Film Trailer

Spominjanje / Resurfacing is a new film by Jan Fabris. Sound mixed by the famous Slovenian sound designer Julij Zornik. Director of photography Vida Habjanič. Featuring Miha Rodman, Anka Eržen and Sara Horžen.

This is something very (musically) different! The new music genre for me was not the only thing to explore. The soundtrack has a very unusual creation path, many thanks to the endless lockdowns.
