COMPOSER | ARRANGER




THE IGNITION (Live Recording with Landesjugendorchester Sachsen)

 

Concert Work

 

In this context I imagined the flame to be the passion for orchestral music. Bold, energetic, rhythmically engaging and heroic - anything a fanfare would need. My initial motivation for this piece was to write something that would ignite this flaming passion for orchestral music in the listener.

 

I envisioned this piece to be a worthy opening or closing piece of a concert program.



DIE BESTE NACHT - KONTRA K (Production by Das Ding and Baden-Baden Events GmbH)

 

Arranger/Orchestrator: Rap - Band & symphonic orchestra

 

One of Germany's most successful rappers, Kontra K, together on stage with a symphonic orchestra.

The premiere in the Kurhaus Baden-Baden Benazetsaal took the Crossover concept to its limits. The very static beats of Kontra K's music melting with the organic body the orchestra offers.

 

Listen to the full track "Soldaten 2.0" in the video.



A SILVER LINING

 

Symphonic Miniature

 

2020 is a year to remember. Covid-19 really changed the perspective on our current lifestyle as a society and showed us how we, as individuals, value and care for our society. The year was plagued with negativity and bad energy that sucked the creativity out of many of us. I struggled too. 

 

A Silver Lining is my way of trying to start 2021 on a positive. The piece overflows with uplifting energy and compresses it into a burst of positivity, like a silver lining it shows us the end of a dark and rather depressing period.



UNREAL TOURNAMENT

 

Video Game Music

 

Unreal Tournament is one of the most popular Arena FPS games to date. Very different to my usual line of work, the music for Unreal Tournament is aggressive, highly percussive, synth heavy and only utilizes small bursts of orchestral color.

 

Listen to the music of DM-LEA  in the video.
