The idea for this song came a while ago in New York. It was a rainy and rather gloomy day. I wanted to cross the street near bryant park, when I saw a girl singing, dancing and going absolutely crazy. It lightened the mood of everyone present. So in my endeavour to combine classical and electronic pop music, I wrote some lyrics, unpacked my violin and recorded this song.

This is a compilation of the world premiere of the first symphony I composed. Inspired by a day at the Silsersee in Switzerland and Vivaldi's four seasons I wrote a 5 movement symphony called "Die Fünf Tageszeiten" - german for "The Five Daytimes". I named them in latin Mane, Meridies, Post Meridiem, Vesper, and Nox.

I had some pieces of this song stuck in my mind a couple of years ago and finally got to put them all together. Hope you like it!

Atem Studios and I came up with this demo. It was quite a challenge. First time I had to get my a-capella skills up and running.

This spot for the UBS bank was made under immense time pressure. Besides producing the music, I was also on the set recording the audio.

So far this has been one of the biggest projects I have been working on together with Atemstudios. It's a swiss sitcom, which has 6 episodes. Other than honing my hip-hop skills in the jingle, I also did all the other audio related work in postproduction.

Next project I'd like to feature is my debut album. I produced it during my time in Berlin. A lot of fun, but a major financial flop. I stuck all my money into the CD, was broke as hell, and had to move on to my best friend's couch for a couple of months. On the upside I improved my production skills and it did lead to further projects...

... Like this one. I got to play my set live in Berlin at Prachtwerk with a stellar band. 

Guitar: Julian S ||| Drums: Max G ||| Bass: Simon H ||| and me 

I remember having a hell of a time producing this score. I'm glad no one saw me singing my african chants in the studio though ;-P

Here's a demo of some of my early compositions. A lot of them are from when I was studying film in Switzerland and later film music online at Berklee College of Music. 

This was one of my first short films I scored. In hindsight there are many things I'd improve. Nevertheless it marks a milestone for it got me started with the whole scoring thing.
