HAPPY NEW EARS!
This must have been the most boring competition for the HAPPY NEW EARS AWARD we’ve ever had, with the winner in the lead from the first hour to the last, and capturing almost one third of all votes. Eve Risser, Benjamin Duboc and Edward Perraud are the deserved winners with “En Corps”, which already featured on many top-10 of the year lists too. They have indeed given us some novel listening experience. Congratulations to the winners, and to all other contenders for the great music and ear-opening – and mind-opening – musical ideas. Thanks to all voters for their contribution.
