Henrik Skrams musikk til Ballettguttene blant de nominerte til årets prestisjefylte IFMCA-priser

IFMCA (The International Film Music Critics Association) er et verdensomspennende bransjeorgan for filmmusikk-kritikere som deler ut priser i en rekke sjangerkategorier hvert år, ikke ulikt The Critic’s Choice Awards. Blant de nominerte på årets liste finner vi den norske kinodokumentaren Ballettguttene med musikk av Henrik Skram (90 minutter, Amnesia).

Filmmusikk er naturligvis en nisje, men utover de store filmprisene med egen filmmusikk-kategori er det egentlig kun én annen prisutdeling innad i bransjen som rager like høyt – World Soundtrack Awards i Belgia (som har mer pomp og prakt). Men IFMCAs priser er betydelig mer spesialiserte og har også anledning til å trekke frem de mindre juvelene i tillegg til de store titlene. Nominasjonene blir stemt frem demokratisk i flere runder blant organisasjonens medlemmer.

Utover nominasjonen til vår egen Henrik Skram og Ballettguttene, er det mye hyggelig lesning på årets liste. James Newton Howards enestående musikk til den ganske mislykkede Maleficent er f.eks. representert med flere nominasjoner. Det samme er Hans Zimmers Interstellar og John Powells How to Train Your Dragon 2. Mer urovekkende er det at Alexandre Desplat er så overstadig representert hvert eneste år, men det får tilskrives artikkelforfatterens manglende entusiasme for den franske superkomponisten. Den største skandalen er imidlertid at Howard Shores tredje Hobbiten-partitur er blitt stemt frem i sin sjanger. Maken til inspirasjonsløs verk har vi ikke sett fra ham på årevis.

Heldigvis har listen flere mindre og ukjente perler som veier opp for skuffelsen – Christopher Youngs The Monkey King, Gustavo Dudamels The Liberator, Nuno Malos No God No Master eller Max Richters usigelig vakre musikk til TV-serien The Leftovers, for å nevne noen.

I Skrams dokumentar-kategori må det konkurreres mot kanonene George Fenton (Bears), Alan Silvestri (Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey), Ben Foster (Hidden Kingdoms) og Danny Elfman (The Unknown Known). Det kan bli tøft, men på vegne av norske filmmusikk-entusiaster krysser vi fingrene. Vinnerne annonseres 19. februar.
