Ever since I can remember, music has been part of my life. My mother—who both played in and conducted an orchestra—also taught guitar, so it’s not surprising that I had my first lessons when I was six. My father was a big movie and soundtrack fan. When I was eight, he took me to a movie merchandise store, where I bought my first soundtrack—Aliens, by James Horner.
From that moment on, I was almost obsessed with the idea of writing soundtracks myself and telling my own stories through music. I mixed and sampled on cassettes and pounded one Casio keyboard after another into oblivion. And when I formed my first Metal band at fourteen, I was already integrating virtual orchestras into our songs.
But before uniting my two passions, soundtracks and video games—after all, I did grow up in the 1990s—I enjoyed the wild rock’n’roll lifestyle, touring with various medieval and folk bands. And because I just couldn’t get enough, I decided to start my own recording studio with a friend of mine. There, I worked as a producer for every conceivable type of band and music while completing my training as a software programmer. During this time, my love for old, ethnic instruments was kindled, culminating in a bizarre collection of all kinds of string instruments from nearly every era…
My earlier enthusiasm for realizing my own ideas and stories through music was sparked anew, and once again I turned to movie music. While exploring both areas—film and composition—I discovered what most excited me about them: blending unusual folk and ethnic instruments with the large, full sound of an orchestra. Every element, along with its unique, special color, contributed to the project at hand, generating a mood that was conveyed by more than just the score. This exciting harmony became a major focus in my productions.
It wasn’t until 2013 that I found out how I could combine all these various interests and experiences: in video games. No other field features more creativity, variety, possibilities, and challenges than the worlds, the stories, and the characters of video games, as well as their gameplay, graphics, and sounds. Ultimately, all these components merge into a single complex and harmonious whole—a process that has been intensified even further by the fresh, new ideas appearing in the indie-dev scene.
Since 2015, I have been composing music and creating sound for video games, pen-and-paper role-playing games, as well as movies. My career has led me across the Guild 3, Victor Vran, the award-winning Earthdawn soundtrack, the prizewinning steampunk action film Space 1889 – The Secret of Phobos, all the way to where I am today. And I hope it will continue to lead me to many other fantastic worlds.
