CONTEST: Write the score for “What We Want To…

As you readers may remember, about two years ago we started a project called “What We Want To Be”, a short film based on the poetry of SION. You can see a version of the film here, but we still consider this to be an unfinished product.

Why is it unfinished? Because it has no music…but not for long.

SION decided to put out a call for composers to take a crack at creating the score for this film. We’ve generated a lot of interest, and several talented composers will be submitting their take on the project. Once everyone has submitted, SION and Pit Crew Productions will choose a winner.

If you are a composer and would like to participate, e-mail SION at

Otherwise, stay tuned for more announcements regarding this contest. We are planning to select the winner in October, and we will announce the exact reveal date later this month. This film celebrates creatives, and we are all absolutely excited to see what everyone comes up with!

We just finished postproduction on a new short film! Featuring the poetry of SION, and the photography of Mark Seawell, What We Want To Be is about artists and their motivation to create. The film will be released in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

SION has been performing since 2007, and has been featured at numerous poetry events in Orlando, Providence, London, Kuala Lumpur, Jerusalem, Vienna and Germany. He is also the host of Soul Sophistication, a monthly open mic event at Ramstein Air Base.
