Best Music in a Feature Film

The Blinding Sea has just won the Award for Best Music in a Feature Film, at the Vancouver Independent Film Festival. This is the seventeenth award for the film so far.

I served as musical director, and play the piano, organ, harpsichord and chimes in the film. I share this award with seventeen wonderfully talented musicians who joined me in creating the musical track for this film.
