The results are in — Sound Bites #1 winners!
What a weekend it’s been! Last Thursday, when we announced our first Sound Bites contest and provided a video in need of audio accompaniment, we had no idea what to expect. In our wildest dreams, we couldn’t have hoped for over 70 amazing submissions over the course of a weekend, but look what we’ve gotten!
It wasn’t easy whittling such a bumper crop down to the top three, and it was even harder picking an overall winner. But our superstar jury — consisting of Team Vimeo, Team SoundCloud, and filmmaker Remyyy — persisted and made a selection. So without further ado, here are our big winners.
The first place winner and recipient of a SoundCloud Premium upgrade, a Vimeo Plus subscription, and a SoundCloud swag pack, is Sasha Gransjean. Sasha created his submission almost entirely out of sounds from the video, adding only piano. Quite an impressive feat! Watch the video with his audio in place below, or just listen to the track in the SoundCloud player.

Next, our two runners up, who each receive a SoundCloud swag pack. We’ve got Jennie Mahood, with absolutely beautiful vocals on the track “Patiently.” Check out the video and SoundCloud player below.

We’ve removed the third video on a request from the user who submitted the track, but there are plenty of other great entries to listen to!
A huge thanks again to every single entrant. It was so much fun to listen to all of the amazing submissions, and it’s worth listening to each and every one of them. Stay tuned for Sound Bites #2 coming soon!
