BALTIMORE, MD -- Jillian "pixietricks" Goldin, OC ReMix judge and ReMixer, emerged victorious in OurStage.com's March 2008 Music Finals. Goldin's New Age/World channel-winning song "Hajime" bested thirty-six other channel winners out of a pool of over 30,000 entries to claim first place. Along with the $5,000 Grand Prize, Goldin (www.jilliangoldin.com) is also eligible for several other prizes and awards offered by OurStage and its partners.

Goldin's "Hajime" is the opening track of her original New Age/World album, Origins, which will be available April 22nd through her website, CDBaby.com, and Apple iTunes.

OurStage (www.ourstage.com) was launched in 2007 to increase the exposure of independent musicians and filmmakers through its democratic "battle" voting system, where users are able to judge each entry against all other competitors. OurStage winners earn cash prizes, along with the potential of other perks including magazine coverage, opportunities to perform at concerts and festivals, and mentoring sessions with established musicians and filmmakers.

"I will also be making a donation to the community of OverClocked ReMix, because my friends and fans there have given [me] so much over the years," said Goldin in an interview with OurStage's Quinn Strassel. OverClocked ReMix provides support for developing artists for both game music arrangements and original music. Goldin has performed vocals for 2K Games' Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword soundtrack as well as demo vocals for composer Christopher Tin.

Fellow OC ReMixers Andrew "zircon" Aversa and Danny "SGX" Adler also placed third and fourth in OurStage's March 2008 Music Finals after wins in the Techno/Club/Dance and Electronic channels, respectively.
