“PARANO” Film I Scored Music for Wins “The Van Leer Award for Best Director of a Documentary” at Jerusalem Film Festival

Parano Film PosterHuge congratulations to Ariel Semmel, who won “The Van Leer Award for Best Director of a Documentary” at Jerusalem Film Festival!

Despite having only contributed a small portion of music to “PARANO” for Isreali director and friend Ariel Semmel, I’m proud and happy to hear that my music got amazing reviews.

Ariel: “Your music captures everybody in the beginning of the film!”

It’s a great gain to be working with Ariel, who’s a professional with every fiber in his body. His film is touching, shocking, emotional, brutally honest and the some of bravest self-exposures I have ever witnessed. When I watched one of the earlier edits of the film — in order to prepare myself for the music to be written — I needed days to process what I had seen, the movie’s that intense.

You might think from the “cover of the book”, this movie is about a distraught guy who thinks he’s been abducted by aliens. Not even close. This movie is much more than that. It touched me every second, frame by frame.

For Ariel I wish that PARANO gets the attention and rewards it deserves. Go check out details about the film here:

The shortest review for Steven Wilson’s new album “To The Bone” you’ll find on the internet

Steven Wilson - To The BoneI could write a 24 km long review about Steven Wilson’s new album “To The Bone”, which I’m lucky enough to have a promo copy of. I’ll keep my review as long as necessary. Here’s what I have to say:

It’s a beautiful album containing some of the best song-writing Steven has ever done. The album makes sense to listen to as an album, individual tracks are still amazing but the music only stands out as a whole, and then it’s a mind-blowing work.
