This year marks the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, and even though initiatives to target areas crucial to creating a more environmentally friendly society have been hampered by the Coronavirus, it does not mean the show can’t go on. With organizations such as Earth Day going digital this year and thanks to projects dedicated to cleaning up the environment already in place since January (Forbes), all is not lost.
Earth Day can be a time of reflection, education or re-commitment to the world we live in. Lakeshore Records is proud to have partnered with filmmakers and composers on climate change and environmental projects such as through last year’s Before The Flood release in which we, along with composers Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross, Gustavo Santaolalla and Mogwai, helped raise $10k for terrapass, a charity that works to offset carbon emissions.
This year, we are pleased to present National Geographic’s A Symphony For Our World, which premieres tonight. This, and other Earth Day films below feature music by some of the world’s most celebrated musicians and composers.
Looking back to 2016, it was a very good year for composer Antony Partos, when his score to Lakeshore Records release Sherpa picked up double wins for Best Feature Score at AACTA Awards (the Australian Oscars) and Best Soundtrack at the Australian Guild of Screen Composers (AGSC) Awards! Full list at APRA AMCOS. Prior to that, the Jennifer Peedom-directed film secured the prestigious BAFTA nomination. Let’s revisit Sherpa (below) and here’s to another winning year!
Lakeshore Records congratulates composer Antony Partos on his Screen Music Awards double wins, one of them being for the BAFTA-nominated Sherpa! Antony is one of the most celebrated composers of Australia, winning 11 Screen Music Awards, with multiple other nominations including Lakeshore’s previous release, The Rover (co-composed by Sam Petty). Congrats to all the winners at this year’s awards!
