Diversity Dominates the 2013 Cue Awards!

by Edmund Meinerts

Yet another year of film, video game and television music is behind us, and even though it feels like we’ve just gotten used to tagging all of our new music as being from 2013, it’s time to bid the year farewell by remembering the best and the brightest that it had to offer. That’s what the Cue Awards are all about – honoring those scores and composers which, when this year has shrunk back into the dusty confines of history, are really worth remembering.

Unlike the previous year, in which ANDREW LOCKINGTON’s JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND swept through four awards, no single score or composer truly dominates the 2013 Cue Awards, with a diverse range of scores represented. Nevertheless, with an impressive total of five nominations, it is no surprise to see the award for Best Composer go to the ever-hardworking BRIAN TYLER, who managed to produce a staggering six film and video game scores in 2013. Among these was NOW YOU SEE ME, for which TYLER concocted a funky updating of 60s- and 70s-era heist music into the modern thriller realm and which earned him a second Cue Award for Best Action Score.

Also the recipient of two awards is OLIVIER DERIVIERE, whose innovative score for the video game REMEMBER ME made excellent use of manipulation, post-processing and reverse edits to reflect the game’s memory-altering concept. Not only did we consider it the Best Video Game Score, but also the most unexpectedly pleasant Surprise of the Year. DERIVIERE nearly carried home a third award for Breakout Composer, but was ultimately nudged out in a tiebreaker by STEVEN PRICE, fresh off of his Academy Award win for the challenging, sound-design-based score to GRAVITY.

In the genre awards, ABEL KORZENIOWSKI wins the Best Dramatic Score award for his replacement work on ROMEO AND JULIET, combining expressive romanticism with his trademark minimalistic structures. MARK MANCINA makes a welcome return to the spotlight with a fun, throwback score for PLANES that is anchored by one of the year’s strongest and most memorable themes – more than enough to win him the award for Best Animated Score. And it’s hard to ignore the stellar work that HOWARD SHORE continues to produce for the world of Middle-earth; THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG is no exception. We consider it not only the Best Fantasy or Science Fiction Score, but also the Best Overall Score the year had to offer.

Good music doesn’t necessarily always come from the big screen, though. This year’s Best Television Score is ANTHONY LLEDO’s LEGENDS OF CHIMA, a colorful and adventure-filled work that any film should have been proud to call its own. The best single Cue of the Year, on the other hand, goes to FINALE from THE LONE RANGER, GEOFF ZANELLI’s lengthy, completely outlandish rearrangement of the William Tell Overture that also weaves in several of HANS ZIMMER’s themes for the film. And finally, no awards would be complete without acknowledging the record companies that go to such pains to ensure that film music both old and new is available for us to enjoy. 2013’s winner for Best Record Label is LA-LA LAND RECORDS, whose triumphs include a lavish 3-CD expansion of JAMES NEWTON HOWARD’s WYATT EARP and an enormous 8-CD anthology of the LETHAL WEAPON scores.

2013 Genius Choice Voting Results

You’re a Genius!

There’s nothing we love more than welcoming viewer participation at Tracksounds, and this year you absolutely blew us away with your enthusiasm for the Genius Choice voting for the Cue Awards.

With more than twice as many entries as last year, we are happy to present the collective wisdom of soundtrack geniuses around the world.

Not So Desolate

Some things never change, including your love for HOWARD SHORE and his ongoing work for the Middle Earth films.

Securing an easy win as Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy Score for The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug, the accolades continued in the Cue of the Year category, where SHORE’s “The Forest River” nearly tied for first place…with another cue from the album, “Beyond the Forest”!

Tying it Up

BRIAN TYLER had a busy year, and it didn’t go unnoticed. His impeccable action writing for Iron Man 3 netted him your award for Best Action Score, with his own Now You See Me as the runner-up.

Not restricted to the film medium, TYLER’s music for video game Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag earned him another win this year as your pick for Best Video Game Score.

In fact, this panoply of skill and talent was so impressive that TYLER emerged as your clear pick for Composer of the Year!

Hot & Cold

Speaking of different mediums, it was the esteemed MURRAY GOLD who won you over in the Best Television Score category for his music in Doctor Who: Series 7.

Frozen was by far the favourite in this year’s Best Animated Score category, earning Christophe Beck some well-deserved appreciation.

The Price is Right

Without a doubt, you all agreed that STEVEN PRICE’s contributions to Gravity were worthy of praise, and his win for Breakout Composer is highlighted by his recent Oscar—with such a strong start, it will be exciting to see where his career goes.

While PRICE surprised you, he fell just short of the mark for Surprise of the Year, an honour you bestowed upon ATLI ORVARSSON instead for his Mortal Instruments: City of Bones score.

For the Record

As usual, the nominees for Record Label of the Year ran a tight race, but La-La Land Records eventually came out ahead, proving that people continue to appreciate their regular mix of old and new score releases.

Dramatic Finish

In a similarly close race, your selection for Best Dramatic Score oscillated wildly during the voting, eventually settling on CRAIG ARMSTRONG’s efforts in The Great Gatsby.

The Best for Last

Despite a solid effort by SHORE fans, the landslide victor of Best Overall Score is none other than MURRAY GOLD for his wonderful work on Doctor Who: Series 7.

As always, we appreciate your sophisticated and considered responses alongside our own and thank you very much for your votes. We look forward to another great year of soundtrack coverage alongside you.

Special Award: The Monkey King 2013

                           image

The Monkey King celebrates the best in Film, Television, and Video Game music from East Asia.

Fall of the King

After a relatively quiet year by his standards, 2012’s Monkey King Award winner Naoki Sato does not return to defend his crown. Despite the exciting music heard in Gyrozetter, Emergency Room 24 Hours Series 5, and Eternal Zero, Naoki Sato’s 2013 somewhat pales in comparison to a remarkable 2012 - understandable given just how many excellent scores he produced throughout that year. Therefore, 2013 shall see a new winner of the Monkey King Award.

A New King

After such a strong year of Japanese film music, the pool of nominees has been extended to five, with two of 2012’s nominees returning. Alongside these two composers arrive perhaps Japan’s most adored composer, an anime veteran, and an impressive youngster.

The Monkey King 2013 - Nominees

The five nominees for The Monkey King 2013 Award, showcasing the best East Asian composers of 2013 are:

Toshiyuki Watanabe

 photo aa43c06d-67a1-4d8e-91fe-3a5e6329db58.jpg

A returning nominee from the Monkey King Award 2012, Toshiyuki Watanabe has had another productive year in 2013. The continuation of Space Brothers and the debut of Majestic Prince has provided listeners with hours of electrifying orchestral thrills, while The Second Movement has proven once again that few composers  can squeeze more expression out of an orchestra than Watanabe.

While Watanabe’s 2013 was less prolific than some of his fellow nominees, the content within each of his score is no less than brilliant and enough to place him among the best of the year.

2013 Credits Include:

The following suite consists of clips from Space Brothers, The Second Movement, and Majestic Prince.

Michiru Oshima

photo da5b72e1-fc78-4f86-a350-c6970d44193b.jpg

Despite an ardent following and her having scored the popular Full Metal Alchemist series, Michiru Oshima’s star has never risen to the heights of the likes of Joe Hisaishi among others. Not having Studio Ghibli as a platform certainly won’t help in that regard, but Oshima’s outstanding talent has never quite gained the recognition it deserves in wider film music circles. Aside from her clear compositional prowess, Oshima’s music has an almost intangible quality to it that suggests a level of experience far beyond her years.

Her music in 2013 ranges from the stirringly dark Blast of Tempest, to the sass of Shomuni 2013, to the sweeping Little Witch Academia.

2013 Credits Include:

The following suite consists of clips from Shomuni 2013, Little Witch Academia, Blast of Tempest, and HAL.

Joe Hisaishi

photo affe1263-c30b-4878-9375-fe2b739c301e.jpg

As the go-to composer for the beloved Hayao Miyazaki, Joe Hisaishi is celebrated worldwide for his Studio Ghibli film scores and subsequently was a gateway into Japanese film music for many of us. Few would deny that Hisaishi is one of the greatest talents in film scoring today, and after decades at the top of his game, 2013 has turned out to be one of his best years yet.

2013 saw Hisaishi write a number of scores, including two for Studio Ghibli in The Wind Rises and The Tale of Princess Kaguya, in what was a great year for the acclaimed composer. His 2013 credits are wonderfully varied, but all contain that unmistakable Hisaishi sound that is so loved.

2013 Credits Include:

The following suite consists of clips from The Wind Rises, Onna Nobunaga, Sweetheart Chocolate, Tokyo Family, NHK Shinkai Project: Deep Sea Creatures, The Tale of Princess Kaguya, and Miracle Apples.

Taro Iwashiro

photo ef9325da-ba3f-4a5d-819c-625318fb2971.jpg

Another returning nominee from 2012, Taro Iwashiro remains at the forefront of Japanese film music as he has done for so many years. Boasting a more varied portfolio than last year, Iwashiro’s 2013 has seen him venture into sci-fi anime (Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet), epic drama (Unforgiven), and even theatre (Natagirimaru), resulting in a strong 12 months.

2013 Credits Include:

The following suite consists of clips from Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet, Natagirimaru, KBS Documentary Superfish: Endless Journey, Ask This of Rikyu, and Unforgiven.

Yugo Kanno

photo 905680ea-825d-47d2-893b-65e7bd3f3608.jpg

One of the most versatile Japanese composers, but also one of the most frustrating, Yugo Kanno is a master of the main theme. So often after creating wondrous main themes, Kanno’s scores have diverged into meandering filler punctuated by the odd variation on the main theme. His 2013 work has suggested that such frustrations may soon be a thing of the past.

Still maintaining his excellent ability to consistently compose electrifying main themes, Kanno’s 2013 scores could be heard in Film, TV, and Video Games. Never one to shy away from a challenge, the young composer’s catalogue is packed full of variation. From the quirky Ando Lloyd, to the intensely dark Psycho Pass, Yugo Kanno is a refreshingly unpredictable alternative to the more traditional composers in Japan.

Kanno’s 2014 has already started in spectacular fashion with what is arguably the strongest of score of his career thus far, NHK’S Gunshi Kanbee. Unrelenting in its excellence, this score for the annual NHK Taiga Drama promises even more with the upcoming second and third score volumes. 2014 is set to be a stellar year for the final Monkey King Award 2013 nominee, Yugo Kanno.

2013 credits include:

The following suite consists of clips from Ando Lloyd: A.I. Knows Love, Psycho Pass, The Lovers of Share House, and Gunshi Kanbee (2014).

Matt Uelmen (Torchlight II) Full Interview - Genius Choice Vote (2012 Cue Awards)

This is the full interview with Genius Choice Vote winner for The 2012 Marius Award, Matt Uelmen, who won for his original score for the video game, Torchlight II (Runic Games).  An excerpt of this interview was presented, in part, in episode 58 of The SoundCast.

The Genius Choice Vote is the “people’s choice” branch of The Cue Awards.  While the inaugural, official Marius Award went to Lifeformed (Terence Lee) for his score for Fastfall: Dustforce, the Genius Choice voter selected Matt Uelmen.

You Have Spoken: The Genius Choice Winners Revealed

You’ve had your say, and we’ve been thrilled by your thoughtful choices — many of which were surprisingly different from our own selections!

As this year’s Cue Awards come to a close, we’re happy to present your Genius Choice winners for 2012.

It’s A Shore Thing

We have many Middle Earth fans among us, it seems, as HOWARD SHORE’s powerful score to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey managed to take home an incredible five awards! Both the Best Cue, “Over Hill”, and most Memorable Theme, “Misty Mountains” came from SHORE’s grand opus, and The Hobbit was considered not only the Best Action/Sci-Fi Score, but also the Best Overall Score! SHORE’s incredible achievement is crowned by one final win for Composer of the Year. We look forward to seeing where he takes the franchise from here!

Synergy

While many category choices differed from our own, the Genius Choice selections sometimes aligned with our own, as in the case of MYCHAEL DANNA’s wonderful score for Life of Pi, which comfortably won Best Dramatic Score. Likewise, the Geniuses considered LA-LA LAND to be the Record Label of the Year, and NAOKI SATO effortlessly won The Monkey King Award for best East Asian scoring.

Elementary

It was DAVID ARNOLD and MICHAEL PRICE’s contributions to the second season of Sherlock that won your hearts for Best TV Score, by a long shot, and while you agreed with us that Journey 2: The Mysterious Island was a Surprise of the Year, you also found Halo 4 to be worthy of mention — the first-ever tie in the results!

Gaming the System

Both of our gaming categories featured completely different winners from the Genius Choice voting than our own picks, with the legendary MATT UELMEN, winning The Marius Award for best indie game score, and AUSTIN WINTORY’s highly acclaimed score for Journey taking home the award for Best Video Game Score.

Expect the Unexpected

Some of the most fascinating Genius Choice results came from the categories we least expected — Breakout Composer went to the talented FERNANDO VELASQUEZ, and you considered PATRICK DOYLE’s work on Brave to be the only one worthy of winning an award for Best Animated Score.

With such a diverse set of choices, we can safely say that, thanks to you, the goal of the Cue Awards — to give exposure and recognition to truly deserving composers — has been achieved!
