The boundless creativity and talent on SoundCloud make our community so unique. We love hearing about your stories of growth and success. We’re excited to bring you one of the most exciting opportunities to touch down on our platform.

Academy Award® winning, world renowned composer Hans Zimmer is looking for the next composer on SoundCloud to mentor and join the Bleeding Fingers Custom Music Shop, a joint venture between Hans Zimmer’s Remote Control Productions, Extreme Music and Sony/ATV Music Publishing. Bleeding Fingers has been responsible for creating scores for such shows as Survivor XVIII, Mountain Men, Duck Dynasty and more.

Hans Zimmer has created an original theme called “Destiny’s Door” exclusively for this contest on SoundCloud. Recompose the track using any of the stems and your own inspiration, creativity and original work. Keep the track length to 90-120 seconds.

Submissions can be voted on by the public at http://www.hanszimmerwantsyou.com and winners will ultimately be chosen by a panel of judges who have composed music for such films as Inception, 300 and The Dark Knight Rises, including Hans Zimmer himself.

The prize includes the opportunity for full-time employment, including a full benefits package, plus the use of a fully equipped studio in a brand new state-of-the-art facility in Santa Monica, California. Three finalists will be announced on or before March 20, 2014.

Here’s how to participate:

Good luck!
