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.
