Eternal Conquest 

With my second round of "Formed In Translation" we go on a journey into a medieval scene. 


“Eternal Conquest” was inspired by an amazing drawing from Leander Kemperdick.  

While Leander's painting, through its colour palette and personified depiction of death, illuminates the external perspective and thus essentially describes the senselessness of war and conquest, the music is more intended to capture the inner feelings of the protagonists. Because of their moulded world views, they are ready to face death. Although a certain fear is perceptible at the beginning of the music, the euphoria of war quickly covers up this uncertainty.

For the instrumentation, I decided on a mixture of percussion, orchestra and medieval instruments. In the intro, the view of the foreign fortress is musically depicted, thus illustrating the fear of a powerful, foreign culture. Then the main theme is presented first by a small woodwind group, afterwards by the orchestra. In the B section, the heroic story of a knight is told musically, with interplay between woodwinds, horn, viola and violin. Shortly before the end, in the fulminant orchestral tutti, triplet staccati of the low instruments are heard against the main theme, drawing a stormy finale. The theme was deliberately chosen to be dance-like and conveys optimism, hope of the feast after the battle, but possibly also the hidden fear.

It's hard to believe, but we've travelled from distant galaxies to the Middle Ages, and I'm excited to see what's in store for us next

Cosmic Monoliths

In April, I created the orchestral track “Cosmic Monoliths” as a release for “Formed in Translation”.

Formed In Translation is a project where two composers and two visual artists come together to create a new kind of artistry based on the principle of "Chinese Whispers" (Ger.: "Stille Post"): one artist starts by creating a piece of work and hands it over to the next in the row. The second person, inspired by their very own interpretation, forms a new piece out of the one they've gotten. This way, a first idea changes from a picture into music and back on its way through the artists' hands, translated into something new every time. The piece moves to another person in the cycle every month.


 “Cosmic Monoliths” was inspired by a drawing by Leander Kemperdick that portrays a mix of ancient and modern elements. The image features four figures walking through a cosmic landscape with massive stone sculptures and mystical green light. Despite the extraterrestrial setting, the drawing also exudes a sense of nostalgia with vintage clothing and lanterns. The musical composition blends the unknown with familiar instruments and tells a story of adventure and discovery. It starts with a dialogue between trombone, horn, and timpani to evoke the gravity and antiquity of the stone figures, and then the choir and theremin create a mystical and otherworldly atmosphere. The final section features a space battle, taking the story beyond the original image and into the realm of epic science fiction.

Original Music for An_Other

"An_Other" is a short film framed in a mapping experience. It portrays everyday objects, faces, and actions fragmented on architectural spaces to depict the delicacy, oddity, horror, and beauty of mundane life. In a 10-minute visual sequence that is repeated three times with contrasting sound designs and original music, spectators face up a gamut of sensations in an urban setting combining a minimal narrative from  cinema with the free-flow spatialization granted by architecture as a space-medium framework. Due to covid this project was postponed several times until It was implemented in a model version of the Cologne courtyard.and was shown for the first time on the 4th Novemer 2022 from 9-9.30 p.m. at the Kulturbunker Mülheim.

Director: Loreto Quijada

Bridgerton 


For this year's Spitfire Audio scoring competition I've tried to do something very different: using an instrument pallet that I usually wouldn't.

In this film clip, you'll hear synths, acoustic and electric guitars, and even electronic drums alongside harpsichord, brass and string accents.
Have fun!

Zimmer Scoring Challenge

It was a great pleasure to score the short nature video of Spitfire Audio as part of the Zimmer-Scoring-Challenge. (#HansZimmerMonth) This time, I also added some Sounddesign elements in order to create a more realistic soundscape.

It begins with quiet chords and gradually builds into an epic piece that highlights the power of water and the beauty of the landscape. The music then rises tonally, analogous to the long shot, to culminate in a sound that seems heavenly.

Stargirl Competition 2021 

I've created my own score version for a little scene from DC's series Stargirl as part of a competition holded by Spitfire Audio. 

It was a special work, that made a lot of fun because of the constantly altering moods and emotions, which needed to be translated into music. I used about 100 single tracks and focused on a big orchestral mock-up.

Scorerelief 2021

I wanted to start this year with another filmscore, so I decided to enter the scorerelief scoring competition 2021 for a short animation called "Spring". I've created an orchestral track with almost 80 different single tracks and wanted to retell the story musically. Therefore, I used one bigger "spring theme", that appears twice and is extended in the end to underline the beautiful nature.

Music starts after about 20 seconds.
