Music and Sound for Film

This home page features some basic information about my work in music and sound design. Music is a crucial component of any film and can be responsible for most of the emotional impact of a film. Before you figure out what to expect from a scene, the music will have told you. Or it may leave you in uncharted territory and remain ambiguous and plurivalent. No matter what way of storytelling is chosen or what kind of music is required by the film - I am here to support the storyline and to help get your message across. The content of this webpage is featuring the most relevant pieces of my work so far.

My Blog is here.

The title image is a still from Maryna Shchipak's "Wal", a charming animation short for children.

I have done music as well as sounddesign for quite a few features, short films and commercial spots.
The most relevant ones can be found below or viewed if you scroll down even further.

Some Short Films and Spots that I have worked on:

Here’s my Youtube-Playlist. It contains many spots and trailers, but also some full short films, such as „Heldenkanzler“, „366 Tage“ and „Copyshop“. Feel free to browse it and check out some of the amazing productions I had the opportunity of contributing music and/or sound to. This should be pretty entertaining. My vimeo playlist ist below.

Click the picture above to find my Vimeo-Playlist. It partly overlaps with my Youtube-Playlist, but there’s some stuff you’ll only find here, since some filmmakers such as Kris Hofmann and Pauline Flory prefer this platform, so it’s worth checking out both … Vimeo-Playlists can’t be embedded, unfortunately, so you’ll have to use the link.
