The Sleepwalker had screened in competition at First Time Fest earlier this weekend, and, as such, it ran the risk of winning stuff at an award ceremony this afternoon. While I ate my ravioli and watched Colbert online it was brought to my attention that there existed a category for Best Score, and, merely an hour before the ceremony, I decided to show up, just in case. As I stepped off the subway on Times Square I torched my umbrella, stepped into the ceremony and sat down - mere meters from Tony Bennett and a strange painting of Slash. The man on stage said my name, and that of someone called Kato Åbland, known to his mama as Kato Ådland, and so I walked right up there and humbly accepted the award for Outstanding Achievement In Scoring. The Sleepwalker’s @zgaller also took home the award for Outstanding Achievement. And someone grabbed my shoulder and said “congratulations! I love music”. Thanks! (at FIRST TIME FEST)
