About APRA Tropscore
The object of APRA Tropscore is simple – produce a musical score or synch for a short film clip provided by Tropfest.
The winning score is picked by a panel of judges, which in past years have included – Paul Mac; Clare Bowditch; Antony Partos (Animal Kingdom); and Andrew Lancaster (Accidents Happen with Gina Davis)
Musician Pluto Jonze won Tropscore in 2009 and has since nabbed a recording contract, released an EP, and works with hot ticket bands like The Jezabels, Cut Copy, The Holidays and Midnight Juggernauts.
“Winning and playing the score live in The Domain to tens of thousands is something I will never forget,” says Jonze. “It gave me the confidence to whole-heartedly pursue my musical ambitions.”
“Tropscore was a real stepping stone for me and a great opportunity not just for classical composers, but for young bands and artists to explore their craft,” he says.
Tropfest are thrilled to announce that the inaugural APRA Tropscore Jr – a competition for composers aged 15 and under – will take place in February 2013.
This is a huge opportunity for all young musicians and aspiring composers.
