HERO – Short Film – Composer

HERO – Short Film – Composer


Posted on Sep 23, 2017 in News

Over the past few weeks, I had the privilege to work on a project that is probably one of the dreams for every film composer. I got contacted by Drew and Nate – two brothers – of Ice Cream Entertainment to score their short film called HERO. They asked me to write music in the style of 80s/90s adventure scores and gave me complete creative freedom on the music, which is a very rare opportunity these days. Their love for...

The German Pops Orchestra did a fantastic job and was conducted by Daniel Behrens.  We already had a rehearsal with the orchestra a few days ago in Lübeck (see pictures...

I spent the last few days in the beautiful city of Halle attending this year’s Filmmusiktage.

A few months ago, I had the priviledge and pleasure to arrange a big part of the orchestral parts of Matthias Schweighöfers first album LACHEN WEINEN TANZEN. As the music is pretty filmic and “grand scale” there was quite a bit of room for the orchestra to add to the songs. The orchestra was recorded at the world famous Teldex-Studio in Berlin with a quite large line-up of 50 string players and 13 brass players including 6...
