Music for “Be sombody else” part 2

The second part of Isabel Mohn’s piece “Be sombody else” premiered at the Théâtre Prospero in Montreal, Quebec. The music I composed constantly shifts between sounds, noise and music. For example, I used a recording of sombody breathing and gradually filtered a melody with four-part harmonization out of it using solely an equalizer. Or the other way round: I gradually filtered all the tonal elements out of a music recording, ending up with only sound and noise.

Sound editing and sound mixing for documentary

Moritz Siebert’s wonderful documentary film “Erntehelfer” is about Cyriac, an Indian catholic priest who serves in a tiny Bavarian village. Moritz followed Cyriac and the people in the village for more than a year and managed to get really close to their every-day life. The intimacy and authenticity of his film was partly made possible by him filming and recording audio single-handedly. But this also meant that a lot had to be done in post production and that my job was quite demanding. But I was happy to contribute to this film by doing audio repair, sound editing, sound design and sound mixing.

Music and sound design for “Consuming Me”

This is my second collaboration with film director Kai Stänicke. Working with Kai is always fun and rewarding because of his fine sense for musical subtleties. This short film was also a great opportunity for me to combine and fuse sound design, composition and music production.

Sound editing for Nevin Aladag’s Session

It was great fun to do the sound editing for Nevin Aladag’s latest work “Session”. It’s a 3 channel video installation featuring traditional arabic musical instruments. They are “played” by desert wind, waves, sand, dripping water and the wind blast on a motor bike. Mixed and edited the instruments form a band!

Music for the dance piece “Be Sombody Else”

It was so much fun to play  cello, tuba and e-guitar for the music composed for Isabel Mohn’s contemporary dance piece “Be sombody Else”. The piece was premiered at “Quartiers Danses” in Montreal, Canada.
