During that time I have already been working as composer and orchestrator on several major film projects, including the British comedy SAVE ANGEL HOPE starring Billy Boyd, Bernard Hill where I had the opportunity to record a feature film score with full orchestra only at the age of 21. Since then I worked on several national and international film scores such as MORGEN IHR LUSCHEN! – DER AUSBILDER SCHMIDT FILM, TELL, LIEBLING, LASS UNS SCHEIDEN and others. Most recently, I have written the score for the award winnig short film HERO. I’m currently writing the score for I KRIG & KAERLIGHED, one of the highest budgeted Danish feature films of all times to be released in November 2018.
I’m writing concert music on a quite regular basis for several ensembles and artists, including orchestras, bigbands and chamber ensembles. In 2010 I was commissioned to write a violin concerto for Anna Karkowska and the London Symphony Orchestra which has been recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London. I have been orchestrating music for live tours by Russell Watson and Sarah Chang. In 2012 I composed the overture for the “Bridges to Classic” open air concert event at Händelfestspiele in Halle/Saale. Big parts of the debut album REFLECTIONS by classical soprano Aliki have been arranged, orchestrated and produced by me. I arranged/orchestrated compositions by Christian Sprenger based on melodies by Martin Luther for an Album and Concert production.
My work also includes composition and orchestration for international commercial campaigns. For Song Zu, I have written the music for the INTO THE WOODS commercial campaign by John West Australia which has been recorded with a 70 piece orchestra.
For the Europäische Filmphilharmonie, I regularly orchestrate and arrange film music including THE LORD OF THE RINGS, LOVE STORY, HALLOWEEN, DEATH ON NILE and many more which get performed internationally by major orchestras. For a live concert at the Zurich Film Festival, I have been arranging TIME from Inception for Hans Zimmer, who was playing the Piano at this concert himself.
THE CONCERT STAGE
Besides my work as composer, orchestrator and arranger, I am a private teacher for composition, orchestration and music theory for several students around the world and have been a tutor for the online course Cinematic Orchestration by Thinkspaceducation.
I live and work in Berlin, Germany.
