A few weeks ago, I had the rare opportunity to record the score that I have written for a commercial with a full symphonic orchestra by order of Zweigleis Media. The commercial currently airs in Swiss Cinemas before Spectre and will be also airing before the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It was great fun, doing some Sci-Fi scoring for this project and the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra played marvellously. If you...

A few days ago, I went to Prague to record the score for the game Pastry Party, that I have been working on over the last weeks. Working on that score was one of the most fun experiences as the whole game has a French Style to it, mainly playing in a world made out of French pastry. So the idea was to make the music reflect this world as well. So apart from a regular orchestra, we brought in additional musicians like an Accordion,...

If you register until September 15th, you will get an early...

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,...

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...
