I was born in 1998 and raised in Oerlinghausen, where I found my way to music by playing trombone, piano and guitar. I wrote several pieces for big band at school and made my first film scores in 2015. Being part of different ensembles, my style is influenced by genres as pop-, classical-, jazz- and experimental- music, but I'm open for any new musical ways.
Between 2016 and 2021 music and media at the Institut für Musik und Medien as part of the Robert Schumann Hochschule in Düsseldorf, where I also had jazz guitar classes with Heiner Rennebaum and received two scholarships.
In August 2019 I won the WDR Filmscore Award as part of the european talent competition. Therefore I was able to record two own tracks with the WDR-Funkhausorchester.
Currently, I'm working on different projects as composer, arranger, and music producer in order to focus my skills in writing music for moving picture and media in general. In autumn 2021 the first vinyl-record, where I was engaged as co-composer, will be released with Eda Zari and Henning Jung.
Since july 2021 I'm also a music producer in the "Studio für Klangdesign" of WDR.

RP wrote about my two orchestral works and the pictorial effect of music.
"Leon Brückner’s score served the different settings of the film excellently. Through good use of silence, the music flexibly switched through the different filmic realms and was capped-off with a nice French twist. The placements and scoring of the music were well-designed and served the film’s humour very well." - STC Jury
