The Fishermen Three Wins Best Documentary Score at SXSW 2011

Posted in News on March 23, 2011

For Brooklyn-based BMI composer Simon Beins, last week’s industry-wide invasion of Austin was especially memorable. Known to many in film and television music circles under his moniker The Fishermen Three, the versatile artist earned the impressive jury prize for Best Documentary Score in recognition of the soundscape he created for feature length documentary The City Dark during SXSW 2011.

With his band the Wowz, The Fishermen Three has also composed scores for the Peabody Award-winning King Corn (2007), Kansas vs. Darwin (2007), and Big River (2009). His music also enriched Zach Galifianakis’ acclaimed It’s Kind of a Funny Story last year, while his latest score for “whimsical urban agriculture folk opera” Truck Farm is currently turning heads at festivals.
