Holkenborg, also known as Junkie XL, will compose a +20 minute musical score based on an interview with the winner to be the “Soundtrack of Your Life.”
Holkenborg will release a new single ‘Despite All That Was’ alongside an NFT drop featuring three original art pieces from Space Renders on NFT platform AmplifyX, built on the energy efficient Tezos blockchain. 10% of the auction gross will be donated to Leonardo DiCaprio’s Earth Alliance charity.

Tom Holkenborg, one of Hollywood’s most coveted composers, has announced he will be minting a truly one-of-a-kind offering, by creating the score to someone’s life. Holkenborg is a blockbuster composer, whose credits include Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Mad Max: Fury Road, Deadpool and Godzilla vs Kong. He has built a reputation for pushing the envelope as a full-contact composer, and has worked with directors including Peter Jackson, Robert Rodriguez, James Cameron, Tim Miller and Zack Snyder among others. The ‘Soundtrack to Your Life’ Auction Begins Noon EST on June 16, 2021 on AmplifyX, an NFT platform built on the energy efficient Tezos blockchain.
The ‘Soundtrack Of Your Life’ NFT concept was developed by Holkenborg to be an offering that would push the boundaries of what is possible with NFTs. Holkenborg will create a 20+ minute original score, based on an interview with the winner, that encapsulates the unique victories, heartbreaks, memories and emotions that make up their lives. The NFT auction is a chance to have one of Hollywood’s singular composers write a truly personalized audio odyssey for you or a loved one. Institutional entrants are also welcome to participate in the bidding.
“This is my first real exploration of the blockchain, I am definitely curious to experiment more, drawn to its transparency and decentralized approach,” said Tom Holkenborg. “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 NFT Open Collection will include the first original non-film related work from Tom since 2012, the single “Despite All That Was” and three original pieces of artwork in collaboration with visual artist Space Renders (Juan Piana) who has previously worked with creators like Camila Cabello, Machine Gun Kelly, Jake Paul and others.
“We’re building the toolkit to help creators raise capital, create additive revenue streams and engage with their fan bases in new ways,” says AmplifyX CEO Adam Cowherd.
