How acclaimed composer Hans Zimmer got to write a crypto theme song

Hans Zimmer, the renowned film composer, has expanded his portfolio to include the exciting realm of cryptocurrency. He’s teamed up with Tron to create a captivating theme song for the Web3 community.

On April 16th, it was revealed that the Tron blockchain would create an anthem of its own, crafted by Zimmer. This musical composition came about through an extensive partnership and brainstorming session between Zimmer and Tron’s founder, Justin Sun, rooted in Web3 principles.

“The Tron Anthem – A Melody for the Web3 Era”

Zimmer has created music for several high-profile contemporary blockbusters such as “Interstellar,” “Dune,” “The Dark Knight,” and “Gladiator.” Now, he’s turning his talents to the world of cryptocurrency.

What goes into writing an anthem for a dynamic and progressive digital community like Web3, according to Sun’s insight shared with CryptoMoon? Zimmer, the composer, offers a unique perspective on the task, as revealed in an exclusive quote.

Since early 2022, the Tron founder and Hans Zimmer have been collaborating on the production of this theme song. According to Sun’s statement, their shared goal was to use music as a tool for enhancing communication and fostering collaboration.

“Hans’s unparalleled creativity and influence make him a natural ally in our quest to harness the power of music to not only showcase who we are but also to attract diverse talents and capabilities to the Web3 ecosystem.”

Sun expressed that the primary goal was to promote empathy and dialogue among the Web3 community, encourage collective efforts, and drive the community towards groundbreaking advancements.

Music serves as an effective platform for conveying concepts and reflecting themes or identities, making it an engaging and inclusive means of connecting with listeners.

“Sun stated that blockchain technology opens up an exciting new realm for digital cooperation, surmounting geographical limitations, time differences, linguistic barriers, and cultural diversity. We are conscious of this revolutionizing influence, and we value the unifying role of music – a language that transcends borders and brings people closer together.”

In an interview with CryptoMoon, Zimmer shared his perspective on the feeling Web3 can evoke and ways to engage with it: “Web3 brings a unique sensation. To grasp it, consider engaging in decentralized technologies that prioritize user control and privacy.”

“Everything that the Western world certainly is built on is a legacy code of the Industrial Revolution. Our education systems are built around that, our government is built around that etc. And once the internet happened, I don’t think we really knew how to use it. I think we need to free ourselves from those philosophies and those restrictions…”

Music has been employed before to bring communities together and promote inclusivity in the Web3 realm.

Previously, classical musicians have employed non-fungible tokens (NFTs) as an innovative means to secure financing outside traditional, restrictive cultural establishments.

In the realm of Web3, music genres interconnect in innovative ways thanks to NFT collaborations and metaverse concerts. This not only brings artists closer to their fan bases but also opens up fresh opportunities for musical partnerships.

The partnership between musicians and Web3 signifies another link between the music industry and this new decentralized realm, hinting at a broader recognition among the masses of its significance in the evolving digital landscape.
