Novello will join BAFTA in recognising video-game
scores at the next awards ceremony. The new gong
will be one of just six categories at the Ivor
Novellos, which take place on 20 May, 2010, reports
Fishlock, director of the British Academy of Songwriters,
Composers and Authors (BASCA) and a member of
The Ivors committee, said: "The Ivors has always
sought to reflect the ever-changing world of songwriting
and composing. The video games market has matured
beyond recognition and big budget orchestral scores
are regularly being commissioned.
music for games also requires a number of specialist
skills compared with conventional film scoring,
such as non-linear and multi-layered composition."
concludes Mark Fishlock.
Folmann won a BAFTA award in 2006 for his work
composing the soundtrack for Tomb
Raider Legend. Folmann had previously scribed
the music for Project Snowblind and introduced
the concept of micro-scoring in video-games.
