We have reviewed all 36 submissions to the Film Score Project and are pleased to announce the score selected for a professional recording by an ensemble in New York City.
The winning score for The Juggler was composed by
Tim Fehling of Madison, Wisconsin.
In his comments on Tim’s score, guest judge Jeff Peters says:
This piece has one of the more unique voices of the finalists. The complexity of the rhythmic alignments makes for an interesting and fun tone that matches the art of juggling quite well. It sounds like what is going on inside of a juggler's head.
As a whole, the connection between the music and film is very strong and precisely coordinated. Most of all, the piece is exactly what the tempo description says - “Bouncy and Fun”.
We will be sending the panelists comments to all of the composers who submitted a score. These comments will be sent directly to the composers through their Musical Exchange message box.
CLOSED TO SUBMISSIONS
Thank you all for your submissions to The Film Score Project. We received 35 submissions to the project, all of them now posted in the comments below. We encourage you to watch other people's submissions and to say what you like about each of the scores. This will be a great way to learn about what is successful about your work.
We will be reviewing the submissions over the next couple of weeks and plan on announcing the selected score by May 1, 2013. At the same time, we will send each of the composers a sheet with comments from our judges about their score.
But, your work is not completely done! Now that you have gone through this process, we would like to hear from you about what this experience has meant to you. There are two ways to keep involved:
Student filmmaker Ali Gorfinkel from Frank Sinatra School of the Arts in New York City has created a short documentary film for her class project, and it’s almost finished. She just needs the film score.
We are taking film score submissions from the composers in the Musical Exchange Composing Group, and we will select one score to record with professional musicians in a recording studio in New York City. Start your score by selecting up to four of the following instruments. (Note: only those scores with no more than four instruments from this list will be eligible for the recording session prize):
Piano | Violin | Cello | Viola | Double Bass
Clarinet | Flute | Bassoon | Oboe | French Horn | Alto Saxophone
Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of professional composers, and feedback will be provided to all applicants.

A very good composition workout! Got some ideas already :) Will post when I finish it.
