Tomorrowland Celebrates 10 Years with ‘Tomorrowland Hymn’ by Hans Zimmer
Tomorrowland is one of dance music’s most anticipated events, with people from over 200 countries flocking to Belgium annually for the three-day gathering. To celebrate the renowned festival’s decade long existence, the heads of Tomorrowland sought out highly-esteemed composer, Hans Zimmer, to produce a commemorative piece entitled ‘Tomorrowland Hymn.’
With the use of classical sounds, Zimmer creates a track that truly evokes visions of otherworldly environments. Stringed instruments drive the track and facilitate earthy tones to establish a soundscape that is truly mystical. Zimmer’s ability fuse synthetic and organic sounds results in a gentle yet euphoric track, celebrating through sound the ability of Tomorrowland – as a global meeting ground – to facilitate a unique type of cultural diversity.
Zimmer has composed music for a lengthy list of films, providing scores for the likes of Lion King, Gladiator, Inception, and over 100 more. A quick Wikipedia search will shed light on his past successes as a four-time GRAMMY, two-time Golden Globe, and Academy Award recipient.
