As first-prize winner of the third-annual Turner Classic Movies Young Film Composers competition, Timothy Smith received a Korg TRITON Music Workstation. Presented by Turner Classic Movies, Film Music, MP3.com and sponsored in part by Korg and Guitar Center, the competition offered a grand prize of $5,000 and a first prize of the Korg TRITON Music Workstation.

The competition was conceived three years ago, as TCM was searching for composers to create music for the 200-plus silent films in the channel’s archives. This year’s competition attracted over 400 entries. Contestants went to TCM’s Website (www.turnerclassicmovies.com) and downloaded one of four 90-second video clips. They created a score for the clip, and then uploaded their score via www.mp3.com. Judges narrowed the entries first to 20 contenders, then to the top 10, from which Smith was selected. His score was for the movie Nosferatu.

"I’m really happy with all the functions and features of the TRITON," commented prize winner Smith. "About 12 years ago, when I first started to get into keyboards, a friend of mine had a Korg, and I was really impressed with its sounds and arpeggiator. Currently, I’m working as a composer for short films, along with commercial work, and I know the TRITON will help me further my art."
