Bio

I am a composer and university teacher based in Vienna. I’m fascinated with film music harmony.

Research

That’s why I’m writing a doctoral thesis on this subject at the Universität für darstellende Kunst Wien. The sources of my work are Bernard Hermann, Igor Strawinsky, Gustav Mahler, John Williams, Gustav Holst, and Danny Elfman.

Education

I’m the Head of Department for Media Music and the senate chairman at the Jam Music Lab University Vienna. Here I teach composition and sound design for games and films.

Composer

I’m a composer at the renowned Universal Edition in Vienna.

Steinberg

Technology is an important part of my work, so Steinberg is my first choice when it comes to music and sound design.
