The 300-plus music pros behind the World Soundtrack Awards, the culminating event of the Ghent Film Fest in October, have announced the nominees for Discovery of the Year, which recognizes rising film composing talent from the previous year.

Brian Byrne (“Albert Nobbs”), David Wingo (“Take Shelter”), film-and-advertising music collective Fall On Your Sword (“Lola Versus,” “Nobody Walks”), Lucas Vidal (“The Raven,” “The Cold Light Of Day,” “Mientras Duermes”) and two-time Emmy winner Trevor Morris (“Immortals”) will vie for a kudo previously won by Oscar winners Gustavo Santaolalla (2003) and Michael Giacchino (2004).
