Composing a track for ADAM Audio Soundtrack Competition 2018
Since buying ADAM Audio T7V monitors, I’ve been keeping an eye on ADAM. On Instagram, I saw a sponsored post (I hate social media ads, but when I saw WIN then it got my attention..) and clicked on the link to find out more.
For the 2nd (?) year in the row, ADAM Audio hosted a Soundtrack Competition, this year with exclusive prizes and a new judge, Aisling Brouwer. The task was to compose a soundtrack of maximum 30 seconds to a photo: “The Opening” (by Tobias Zielony, 2005).
First prize was ADAM A8X white-gloss studio monitors, a world-wide exclusive; second prize SP-5 headphones and third prize T7V speakers.
The winners were announced today, and unfortunately I was not one of them, but I definitely had fun with this assignment!
Here were the winning entries (and you can read more about the feedback of the judge Aisling Brouwer here):
