Tom Holkenborg, a world-renowned film composer for Hollywood blockbusters and DJ, has announced the auctioning of a unique offering.
Holkenborg is planning to compose a one-of-a-kind music score for the ‘Soundtrack Of Your Life’ NFT concept.’ The action is set for June 16, 2021, from noon EST. The auction will take place on Amplifyx, an NFT platform that is built on the Tezos Blockchain.
For the NFT, Holkenborg will reportedly create a 20 minutes plus original score that will be based on an interview with the winner. This will entail capturing the winners’ victories, emotions, memories, heartbreaks, and other details that capture the winner’s life.
While commenting on the auction, Tom Holkenborg stated:
“This is my first real exploration of the Blockchain. I am curious to experiment more, drawn to its transparency and decentralized approach. Beneath the hype, it still feels quite punk rock and DIY, and I believe that major possibilities exist within the Blockchain to help empower creators. It’s always good to think about expanding the limits of how and where music can go and to collaborate with artists in other mediums. I’m certainly not first in the NFT space, but I thought the Soundtrack Of Your Life was my chance to add something different and make something totally unique. It’s going to be fun!”
The auction is open to everyone, including institutional entrants who wish to play as the muse for the Hollywood composer. Over the years, Holkenborg has worked on various projects whose credit include Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Godzilla vs. Kong, and Mad Max: Fury Road, Deadpool. He has worked with many big names in the industry, including Peter Jackson, James Cameron, Robert Rodriguez, Tim Miller, and Zack Snyder, to mention a few.
In addition to the ‘Soundtrack Of Your Life’ NFT, Holkenborgwill also drops 14 other items for auction. Among the fourteen items is the first original non-film work done back in 2012, ‘Despite All That Was,’ and three original pieces of artwork made in partnership with Juan Piana, the visual artist Space Renders. Notably, 10% of the funds collected from the auction is set to be donated to Leonardo DiCaprio’s Earth Alliance charity.
