It’s time for a tech update in context with a rehash of my “customer journey” through the world of sample libraries: I started out with samples in 2001 with Vienna Symphonic Library (then called “Opus 1”, later “Vienna Special Edition”). I think I kind of excelled at using them for my compositions, but increasing expectations… Continue reading Virtual Instruments Upgrade in sight
This is my personal observations of music and score of 2019’s Aladdin in comparison with the 1993 version. I’ll tell you why I think – despite being an absolute fan of the original – that 2019’s Aladdin music and score are superior. I’ll also point out where it imo fails to keep up with the… Continue reading Aladdin Score and Music Analysis
Recently I released my latest composition Don’t Forget My Name on streaming services worldwide. You probably think that the album title doesn’t matter too much. Well, that’s what I thought too. Let me tell you a story… It all started with the legal question of how to label the composition altogether. For obvious reasons the… Continue reading Your Name, My Name, Our Name… naming matters!!
I’m happy to share with you the final version of my latest rescore project, the 2016 anime Your Name, and also the story behind it: My daugther immediately fell in love with the book and the film and showed it to me.

I’m talking about the (of course alternate) End Credits to the anime movie Your Name. For composers the End Credits are always a great… Continue reading End Credits Music for “Your Name”
Every once in a while it’s time to fix what isn’t broken. With 2018 passing soon, I decided it was the perfect time to give my website a makeover. Especially the music portfolio page needed to be condensed. Now there’s a handful of projects with “Top 3” tracks to choose from and also a nice… Continue reading Music Portfolio Overhaul
We’ve come to the end – the end of the film and the end of this advent calendar. Below you find the answer to the rescore riddle. I hope you had fun and enjoyed listening to the music even if you didn’t find out or don’t know the film at all. I had a great… Continue reading Guess-The-Rescore #24 – Searching and Epilogue
We have arrived at the key moment of the story. The music accompanies the girl who’s tried so much to avoid the catastrophe, but ultimately seems to have failed. The music starts when she has no strength left, spending her last thoughts on her love. Suddenly that gives her the strength to get up, carry… Continue reading Guess-The-Rescore #23 – The Comet
