I don’t merely develop compositions as a blueprint, but also take care of the audio production. Especially when it comes to visual media, I love creating crucial elements such as sound design, atmos, and voice overs. Live recordings of classical concerts by microphones, as well as recording direct outs of a modern mixing console are possible anytime anywhere with mobile equipment.
- Music production for movies
- Sound design and atmo
- Live recording and tracking of direct outs (up to 28 tracks synchronously, 20 of which including preamps)
- Mobile recording, editing and mixing
- Voice overs
- Production of previously arranged material, such as a string quartet for a pop song
- Some of my tools: RME interfaces, Neumann, Waves, Omnisphere 2, VSL, NI Komplete Ultimate, …
- Detailed list of studio equipment
- List of instruments
SOUNDBITES (please see also COMPOSER):
Title-Theme for a fictitious TV show in the style of latest HBO productions. The elements derive from all possible areas: sound design, synthies, studio recordings, field recordings, creative use of FXs, …
Mood: TripHop (inspired by the sound of bands such as Portishead and Massive Attack):
Excerpt of a pop song, influenced by the singer-songwriter tradition, “Wenn wir alle” (“If we all”, Michael Hierer):
Recording and mixing: For Kleber Tertuliano and Marco Crivelli I have recorded and mixed 2 Songs for marimbaphone. The instruments – facing each other – were recorded with an AB-combination of 2 XY-placements and supported by large diaphragm cardioids on the low end. The mix features the mysterious, ambient character of the works.
Commissioned work: Trailer for a web-series based on “Das Alte ist vergangen” (“The old has passed”). The sound on tape has at first been oldened artificially, then used for an electro-swing variation, and at last presented in a sound that finds itself somewhere between latest EDM sounds and newscast:
Mood: SpaceNight (inspired amongst others by the live performances of Klaus Schulze):
Audio production for visual media: For a photo gallery by Michael Kestin about the Rieselfelder Münster I have developed a concept and produced the sound.
Live recording: For Hannes Weyland I have taken care of the live concert recording by direct outs of the FOH console. The mixing was done by Mattäus Ciolek of Tonstudio Klangboden.
Recording and mixing: For Andreas Liebrecht I have amongs other works recorded and mixed his composition “Immortal echo”. The piano has been recorded using rather classical microphone positions, yet mixed with a modern sound underlining the character of the composition.
