Joshua D. Peterson



I’ve been writing so much this month, I wasn’t sure if I would have the time to devote to a contest.  A contest with over 5,000 submissions no less.  I pity the intern who has to weed through those.  And I also apologize to that intern for adding to the heap.  

This was a fun exercise in orchestration and sound designing.  Basically, the premise was to use a stem or stems from a composition that Hans Zimmer had written for this contest and… change it.  I heard some fantastic entries that went way outside of the box.  

Here’s my modest crack at it.  I used the Solo Voice Stem in all four tracks and the Percussion Stem in “Four” - because, well, no one does big percussion like Hans Zimmer. 

Check out his original work here: and let me know what you think of my re-imaginings.
