How is your year so far?? Mine is great.. Busy as usual!
I just wanted to write today to tell you about a contest that I entered. A friend of mine sent me a link and the first thing I saw was “Hans Zimmer Wants You!” Many of you know that I love soundtracks and scores. Well one of my favorite composers is Hans Zimmer. For anyone who doesn’t know who that is…he’s a genius. That’s about all there is to it.
Anyway he created a contest where 3 finalists will get the opportunity the work at his company as a full time composer for film and TV! Now, when I say “get the opportunity”, I mean the finalists will actually head out to LA to interview for the job. Exciting, right?
How are the finalists chosen? Starting February 19th, a panel of 4 judges, including Mr. Zimmer, will listen to all of the songs submitted (over 3000). On or before March 20th, the finalists will be announced!
What about the song??
Hans created a short song and basically allowed each contestant to use ANY piece of it to create their own unique work. I used his percussion and pieces of the female vocal line. (I changed the key of course.) You can hear what I came up with below! Please let me know what you think! Enjoy!
