Original Soundtrack Music Featured on
New Award-Winning Documentary Film
Produced by the National Film Board of Canada
Since its first all improvised concert in 1971 NEXUS, the Toronto-based percussion quintet, has performed its music in solo recitals and with symphony orchestras worldwide. The group’s many activities have also involved the creation of award-winning soundtracks to a considerable number of films, including the Academy Award-winning documentary “The Man Who Skied Down Everest.”
In 2007 the music of NEXUS was featured on the documentary film, “Inside Time,” which tells the story of the notorious outlaw and bandit, Stephen Reid, in his own words. The film has recently been honored in Canada with several awards:
1) the 2008 ROBERT BROOKS AWARD FOR DOCUMENTARY CINEMATOGRAPHY
This award was presented to cinematographer Jay Ferguson by The Canadian Society of Cinematographers at the CSC Awards Dinner, held in Toronto.
2) THE 2008 GOLDEN SHEAF AWARD in the DOCUMENTARY – SOCIAL/POLITICAL Category
The award was presented by the Yorkton (SK) Short Film & Video Festival, now entering its 60th year – the longest running festival of its kind in Canada.
NEXUS performed and composed all of the soundtrack music for “Inside Time,” including:
– “The Invisible Proverb” composed by NEXUS member, Russell Hartenberger
