What I do

COMPOSING

composition

As a multi-instrumentalist, I write music in a big variety of genres (pop, indie, rock, electro, americana and trip hop) and in different styles:
I compose minimalist songs as well as pieces with full band arrangements.
When it’s about composing music for movies and theater plays i believe that the perfect match of picture and sound can create a whole new level of experience for the audience. it’s my goal to achieve that symbiosis with every project-
For last minute projects, I can also offer existing music out of my library of over 300 compsitions for which I own all necessary rights to quickly move on.

PRODUCTION

conception

For movies and theater plays the first step is analyzing the script with the director to define the music that will suit the project best.
After decoding the dramaturgy of the scenes I create the score concept.
I take care of planning the production which includes the selection of additional musicians or vocalists as well as the estimation of the cost. Rights clearing is also necessary in the very beginning of the project to be sure that every song or third party content can be used. I offer “one-stop” rights clearing for my music.

RECORDING

recording

Recording is of course the phase about getting the highest quality of sound. But not only. To me, it also means creating a warm and colorful sound sometimes even with a rough edge to give original identity to a sound. To achieve this goal, I use analog gear (handmade tube devices i.e.) along with the latest digital equipment in my studio in Berlin. As a microphone geek, I also love to use unconventional setups like old ribbon microphones from the 30s, which can bring very specific colors to a project. The combination with the latest digital environments leads to an efficient work-flow and ensures the highest audio quality. I record the music in my studio located in Berlin/Neukölln and also offer on-location recording with mobile recording gear.

MIXING

mixing

Mixing is about getting the right balance of the individual tracks, creating space and putting the spotlight on the right things at the right time.
Many years of experience with Logic Pro and other DAWs like Pro Tools & Ableton Live made my skills in this domain very strong.
In order to get the best results for the final delivery, I work closely with mastering specialists.
