Over the last few weeks I have been working on new music for the popular Mobile/Facebook Game BlockStarParty. The idea was to replace the existing music with an orchestral score as the whole mobile games industry recently has been pushing up quality levels on all departments. #concerthall #recording #soundtrack #gamescore Ein von Robin Hoffmann (@r.hoffmann) gepostetes Video am 23.

Almost three years ago, I wrote a piece called A BIG AND BOLD ADVENTURE, designed as buffer piece for remaining session time in Dynamedion’s so-called Open Sessions. However, this piece has a really rapid tempo and some other difficulties (such as constant switches of time signatures) so that it was always pushed to the next session. In the meantime I used it to adjust my Sample Mockup Template and tried making a mockup of it,...

Last week, I went to lovely Smecky Studios in Prague, to record the first bunch of songs for the debut album of Greek/British Soprano Aliki Chrysochou that I arranged and orchestrated over the last couple of weeks.

Aliki Chrysochou – Album Recording


Posted on Jan 20, 2015 in News

A few months ago 2013’s X-Factor UK semi finalist Soprano Aliki Chrysochou reached out to me presenting her idea of her debut album, asking me to arrange and orchestrate the songs which she wanted to record with a live orchestra. We spent a few weeks discussing several ideas of which songs to cover and what approach we would take with this album. Eventually the concept was to do a classical crossover album which features well...

After noticing that I haven’t updated the news page for quite some time, one of my new year’s resolutions is to keep things a little more up to date over here. So the plan is to post at least once a month about what is going on. I’m very curious whether I will keep that :) Over the past few weeks and months I have worked on a lot of projects of which some were very exciting:   SEVEN – BackFunkLoveSoul For...

Two Brand New Orchestral Adventure Cues


Posted on Feb 16, 2014 in News

A while ago, by order of Dynamedion, I wrote a bunch of Disney-ish adventure cues to be recorded with real orchestra for a “Family Entertainment Trailer Music” library. These cues were planned as buffer tracks in sessions that still have some time left in case the real session finishes earlier. So after many sessions went by without recording any of these cues in the most recent session there was enough room to record even...

A few days ago, I went to Zurich/Switzerland to attend the premiere of RECYCLING LILY, which I co-composed and orchestrated at the beginning of the year. The movie turned out very cute and got some positive reviews. It was great fun writing music for it.   Here’s a trailer with English subtitles:     Below, you can see an excerpt from the recording sessions in Prague: sWe’re  very pleased to also see the...

One Minute Hero – New Action Track


Posted on Aug 30, 2013 in News

A few days ago, I set up a new computer system to produce orchestral music with for the cases when I need to demo something for customers or there’s not enough budget for a real orchestra. I used this chance to have a little fun with that system and wrote a little piece in a good old fashioned action style, which you can listen to here: Due to the great community I have over at my FACEBOOK PAGE and on TWITTER, there was a...

New Website Design


Posted on Aug 28, 2013 in News

As you can see, after staying for approximately two years with my old web design and getting a few comments regarding useability and compatibility for it, I found it was time to change it again so here is the new design. I still need to tweak a few things and adjust them according to the new layout but that will follow in the next time. The biggest change for you as a visitor is probably the menu on the top, which I condensed a...

Radio Interview and Ask.FM


Posted on Apr 19, 2013 in News

A few days ago Anne Kahnwald from CinemaWorld aired a quite lengthy interview with me in German about my musical development and  projects that I worked on. If you understand German you can listen to the interview here:   If you don’t understand German, you can use my brand new Ask.FM page to ask me questions (or simply type your question into the Ask.FM Box in the Side bar on the right side of this page).   I’m...

In November/December  of 2012, I was working on a really cool  and for me quite unusual project.   I wrote some trailer music cues for Altitude Music and their Trailer Project MUST SAVE JANE.   The goal was to write a few uplifting trailer tracks without big and apocalyptic choirs or ethnic vocals. It was quite a lot of fun to write this kind of music and I got the great opportunity to record that music with the City of...

The year has started quite busy for me. Two days ago, I flew to Prague to record the score for RECYCLING LILY, a very charming romantic comedy, which I composed together with Philipp Schweidler and Moritz Schneider. We had a blast in Prague once again and the music was very different compared to what I’ve done recently so it felt like a really nice breeze of fresh air after doing quite a bunch of big and epic sounding trailer...

A few days ago, I started working on a  new movie score. The movie is called RECYCLING LILY and is a very heartwarming romantic comedy. I’m co-writing the score with Philipp Schweidler and Moritz Schneider and we’re having a lot of fun writing quirky yet romantic music for this slightly strange but very entertaining movie. We’ll be going to Prague to record the score in a few weeks and it looks like the music will be...
