Tubular Bells Remix Competition - Winner Announced!
If the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony wasn't enough, music fans across the globe jumped at the chance to remix the iconic 'Tubular Bells' in an innovative competition with Indaba Music, the leading online community of musicians and marketplace for music opportunities, which received an incredible 2,500 entries. With entries ranging from dubstep to trance, the winner was personally selected by Mike Oldfield himself from a shortlist of the most popular entries voted by the general public. He said:
"Thanks to everybody for taking part and it has been a hard choice because so many of the entries were truly excellent."
After much deliberation from Mike, the winner of the contest can now be announced as Brobdignagian Bells by David Schornsheim - a sweeping, cinematic reimagining of the classic. You can hear it and explore the many diverse entries at the Indaba site.
