Hans Zimmer Wants You!! Contest Finalists
Congratulations to composers Daniel Suett, Eirik Røland and Ryan Taubert for being the finalists of the Hans Zimmer Wants You!! contest powered by SoundCloud.
Hear their submissions in the set here.
A message from Hans Zimmer:
“Response to our contest has been beyond all expectation with an outstanding level of talent and we received an overwhelming number of potential winning entries. While we could only choose three finalists, we discovered many more outstanding composers and plan to reach out to as many as possible! So, even if you didn’t win – don’t be disheartened - there’s still a chance you could work with Bleeding Fingers!
I need to say an enormous thank you for your generosity, it is clear that many midnight candles have been burnt and much passion poured into a mind blowing torrent of music. I continue to be astounded by the diversity, ingenuity and commitment to your art. While listening, we quickly realized that art and music cannot be judged like a bicycle race or a football game. Music needs to be lived with for a while, music sometimes takes time to be discovered by us in ourselves. We had many thousands of entries, all with a strong point of view, filled with creativity. None of this feels like it was done casually or in haste. So I don’t want to be casual about it either and be respectful of the ideas, the efforts of fellow artists and let this become more of a dialogue between us all into the future than an end to a conversation that’s just starting to get interesting.” - Hans

We’re pleased to announce that Figure from Propellerhead now includes built-in sharing to SoundCloud. Figure is a fun music-making app with drums, bass and lead synth in an easy to use touch interface for iOS devices. Since being released earlier this year, mobile musicians have been using the Figure app to create little masterpieces while on the go. Now it’s time to show the world what you can do with Figure.

To celebrate, Propellerhead is inviting you to create your own beats using the Figure app. Share them to SoundCloud to have a chance to win prizes. Browse Propellerhead’s listening gallery of the latest tracks using Figure’s built-in SoundCloud sharing. Here’s an example.

How does it work?
It’s easy. Use the Figure app to create and share your creation with the world by using built-in SoundCloud sharing (available in Figure version 1.4).

Each play your song gets equals one lottery ticket in the prize draw. The more plays you get, the bigger your chance to win.

Prizes up for grabs for the two winners include:
- Beats Pro headphones and Beatbox Portable speaker by Beats by Dr.Dre
- Propellerhead Software music production suite: Reason, ReCycle and Balance audio interface
- A one year SoundCloud Pro account

The winners will be drawn on March 15th, 2013. Find out the full details on how to take part on the Propellerhead website.
