Between Buchla & Brahms

I am a music composer for award-winning movies and video games currently residing in between Lucerne, Switzerland and The Hague, Netherlands.

 

In retrospect I think it was growing up in the nebula-steeped and mountain-surrounded Rhine valley in Switzerland as the son of a computer programmer that instilled both a love for composers like Johannes Brahms and binary code in me! 

Skilled at creating unique atmospheric soundscapes that support the art of visual storytelling and mood creation, I aim to combine organic material with synthesis, acoustic instruments and analog hardware equipment.

As a sound-painter I am fascinated by beauty and aesthetics - always seeking inspiration in nature and the kinetic processes therein. I do love a good melody and am convinced that this still has its place in modern day scoring work alongside hard-hitting grooves and cutting edge sound design elements.

Especially when working on video games I do enjoy creating the sound design as well to aim for a very coherent and immersive result! 


Trained as a professional pianist and music composer, I am not only an expert in digital music production but a traditionally trained composer and pianist who knows just as much about improvisation, harmony, counterpoint and orchestration.
