Finally, here are the Top 3 entries, chosen and commented by the judge Jake Jackson:
1st place (custom made pair of A77X): “Thunder” by “The Latest Son”
Jake Jackson: “I chose ‘Thunder’ as my winning track as I liked that so much was squeezed into 30 seconds, the opening melody, then a second section different but engaging and powerful. And excellent use of the thunder as part of the music, really. Congratulations on an excellent job.”
2nd place (a pair of A7X): “Realisation” by Andreas Gajewski
Jake Jackson: “‘Realisation’ really caught my ear. I love the chord progression and the orchestration, you are put right into the scene. Smashing!”
3rd place (a pair of F7): “Time Rejection” by Alban Brusson
Jake Jackson: “‘Time Rejection’ – A worthy third place. Again a nice use of two sections of music. Nice use of new and old sounds.
At ADAM Audio we enjoyed listening to so many great soundtracks, so we decided to give away another prize: a pair of F5 monitors goes to “Mixed RecørdS” for his soundtrack called “Strike Strikes”, chosen by the team at ADAM Audio.
Congratulations to all winners!
Jake Jackson on the Soundtrack Competition:
“I was really thrilled with the diversity and originality of the entrants. Very exciting for me to hear such depth of imaginations. […]
In choosing the winners, I wanted a good telling of the story in the picture. I still can’t decide on my personal story, but the winning entries gave me that story and more. Not only that, I wanted a good melodic idea, an interesting orchestration and a good […] stereo mix, but also one that was interesting to listen to, and helped tell that story. […] It was about how the story was told through my ears!”
