I'm a young composer from Munich, Germany. Currently I work as a freelancer. So if anybody has interesting projects - especially film & dance theatre or composing opportunities don't hesitate to contact me! I like to work with people from all over the world!
Currently I work in Germany. Most projects are in Berlin, Hamburg and Munich. I'm a frequenter in many studios, e.g. UFO-Studios in Berlin with a beautiful Steinway D grand piano. Most choreographers I know also live in Berlin.
I'm a "Sibelianer" and work with Sibelius 6. My favourite libraries? I've go to many of them. The main goal is that it should be very hard to hear what are real instruments and which ones are from libraries. I used them in lots of my scores. "HollywoodStyle" is one word I try to use in my music - melody & emotion. It's a fucking bloody business! You think you're good? At least three people are better than you. Be present and develope your own language. A paper & pencil are enough to write wonderful music. But high quality samples impress directors and producers as well. The score gets alive.
Brainstorming about the business: There is one main issue: Create your own language regarding music. Don't try to be John Williams. He's unique. Improve you writing skills. Don't spent too much time in respect of your scores. Time is money. Improove yout knowledge regarding music theory. You don't need to know the meanings of secondary dominants, blue notes or sus chords. But do you learn a new language without any vocabulary or grammer? The cherry on top regarding composing. Because everyone can buy a DAW and create music. So don't write always music you like. Be variable. Try to associate your score with scenes you don't like. Very often you just have to implement a treaty. Present your music. The world wide web is your friend. Use sites like this one, chat with other composers and visit exhibitions. Expand you social network regarding composers and directors. You can be a genius. But at first nobody knows you. And time goes by ..
