I stumbled across a contest a couple days ago. Turns out Hans Zimmer composed a brand new theme, and the contestants get to remix/recompose/ deconstruct the theme to their heart's content, with Zimmer and a panel of other industry professionals choosing the best 3 of the bunch. Fortunately for me, Hans Zimmer is my absolute favorite film composer, and the idea that he might possibly listen to something I worked on is enough to make me scream like a little girl and faint. Unfortunately for me was the fact that I only had 3 days to complete said "theme reconstruction".
And so, 2 and a half sleepless nights later, I give you "The Little Ones, We Marched (and Fell)", my contribution to the contest. I am still a bit unclear as to how the winners are picked. It seems as though "Phase One" is decided by Soundcloud "likes", with the survivors (however many they choose to let through - again, its unclear) facing the judges panel on-route to the "Final 3" prize winners. In other words, if you have a Soundcloud account, you can go to my track, click "Like", and quite possibly make my dreams come true. Just sayin'.
