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.
I compose minimalistic pieces as well as songs with grand full band arrangements and classical instruments. Each project needs its own sound identity to stand out and make it special. I believe that the key to reach this is an original compostion. For last minute projects, I can also choose music out of my growing library of over 300 compsitions.
During the process of recording I use analog equipment to achieve a ”warm” and “colorful” sound. The combination with the latest digital environments leads to an efficient work-flow and ensures 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 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 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.
