Over the last weeks, I have been spending some time arranging choir vocals for Sarah Connor to be performed at this year’s Echo Award on April 7th. I spent some time at the Funkhausstudios in Berlin to record the vocals there and also attended rehearsals at the Echo a few days ago. The final result can be seen and heard here (for the impatient: skip to 2:25 for the choir part): Related posts: Berlinale 2016 – Grand Score...

Over the last few weeks, I have been arranging popular film music themes for a performance during this year’s Berlinale Grand Score show. The film themes were re-arranged and interpreted for a 5 piece Jazz-Funk band which was quite a challenge but great fun as well. #berlinale #rehearsal #grand #scores #event #arranger Ein von Robin Hoffmann (@r.hoffmann) gepostetes Foto am 10.

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,...

Over the last few weeks I have been working on new music for the popular Mobile/Facebook Game BlockStarParty.

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,...
