Peer Raben Music Award

Winner Peer Raben Music Award: Mateo Ojeda (Pantaleón)

Winner Peer Raben Music Award: Mateo Ojeda (Pantaleón)

'The winning composition receives the award for its courage, its humour and its artistic sovereignty. It is courageous in its reduced use of music, and humorous in its adaption of historical references.
For example, the jury was convinced by the integration of percussion in the sound layer and by a guitar that was played in a deliberately amateuric way. In this score, the music serves as a psychological interpretation of the protagonist and his musical point of view.'

Honorary Mention: Dascha Dauenhauer (Love Me, Fear Me)

Honorary Mention: Dascha Dauenhauer (Love Me, Fear Me)

'Dascha Dauenhauer is a composer full of virtuosity for whom the jury can already see a successful path. With her approach to both breaking the genres as well as musically serving the scenes, the jury wishes her a lot of success in the continuation of this convincing journey.'
