Music for TV
I started my musical career as a guitar player in a German Hard Rock Band with which I did two major label releases and countless gigs in Germany, Austria, Suisse, France and Spain.
In 1994 I succeeded in the entry exam of a state approved course of studies. There I did my qualification in composition, orchestration, guitar and conducting under the guidance of Germanys most renowned tutors.
After 6 semesters I finished my studies with a degree.
During this time I set up my first recording room and started writing and producing music for record companies. I wrote Soundtrack – CDs for many different projects containing a lot of World Music Themes and musical descriptions of countries like Africa, India and China.
I wrote the Music for LATIN MUSIC CLUB and up to today 3 Albums for the highly successful AFRICAN TRIBAL ORCHESTRA.
My first experiences in composing for Film and Cinema I gained by scoring the documentary NOSTRADAMUS.
Beside this, I wrote music for music – libraries. ( Sonoton and EMI Production Music in Germany)
In 2007 / 2008 I had the opportunity to produce the score to the Films “Die Reise des Jacob Crane “ and “Coppelius“. ( Both URWERK Film ).
In 2009 I started to write Music for USA television. Luckily my music finds a great echo and is aired on many TV Stations like CBS, NBC, Netflix, Bravo, FOX Sports, History, Telemundo, TLC…

The collection counts 15 rude, grimy, derelict cues brimming with attitude; an assortment of Punctuated Moments and Textures and a cornucopia of glitches, pulses, rises and hits.
Made for scoring trailers, propelling and punctuating the action and setting up dark, foreboding, industrial atmospheres.
