My name is Stefan Smith and I'm a professional composer for Film, TV and Video Games based in LA who also happens to be a tenured member of the viola section of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. After speaking with the editor of this great site, Laurie Niles, I was recommended to post this here as she enjoyed the work as well:
There is a competition for the National Geographic Show "Genius" in which Hans Zimmer and Lorne Balfe wrote the theme music to. We were asked to listen to the original cue (can be heard at this link: Original Genius Theme ) and create our own version. Since Einstein was a violinist, I decided to compose a cue called the "Genius Violin Concerto" and I would love to let you hear it! I'm also playing the violin solo (BE WARNED: I'm a pure-bred violist and literally did one take as I have many deadlines since this was a passion project lol).
Please take a listen and if you like it, click the heart shaped "like" button on the website, share it with your friends, etc as today is the last day to submit votes! It would be a fantastic opportunity for me as a composer!
Listen to the "Genius Violin Concerto" cue here: Genius Violin Concerto
Cheers to more music creation, thanks for your support and Happy Labor Day!
