Working during the day as a Composer & Producer, during the night as a DJ, and the next day as an band frontman, Matthieu Brismontier likes to wear many hats. But most of all, the franco-german composer likes to cross borders…between the electronic and the organic worlds, the german heritage of electronic dance culture and the french realm of psychedelic pop, the soaring cosmic synthesizer leads and the more earthly rhythm grooves, without forgetting to mention his numerous travels around the world.
After growing up in St Brieuc (Brittany, France), where he learns the guitar & the piano at a young age, spending some time honing his musical skills in the USA, and studying in Angers, he settles in Paris, where he forms the Indie Dance Pop band Parlez-vous anglais ?, with whom he played many shows across Europe. A few years later, he moves to his current beloved city of Berlin, where he builds his production studio MOWD. His attention to detail, his love for groove, dynamism and energy, and his passion for creating unique soundscapes brought him to compose and produce music for many different clients such as ARTE, Warner, Universal, Kellogg’s, Lexus and Tracks & Fields…
Along with his DJ alias FRANZ MATTHEWS and his Psychedelic Pop duo LANGUAGES, he also released music on imprints such as Eskimo Recordings, Days of Being Wild, Rockets & Ponies and his own imprint HIFI/LOFI. Did we already say he likes to wear many hats ?

Christopher Colaço and Philipp Schaeper know each other since they moved from their southern german hometowns to Berlin.  Beside that fact of a similarity both  studied Jazz piano/drums at the Berlin University of Arts. While doing this Colaço|Schaeper dived into the vibrant Jazz scene of the german metropole – playing and working together this helps building their enormous musical team spirit. But their proof of content as being a smart composer team was in 2013. As Christopher and Philipp had the opportunity to score their first movie (Oh Boy! – A coffee in Berlin) and therefore formed an old school sounding Jazz band..

After winning the German Academy Award for best original score of: „OH BOY“ , they continued to develop their collaborative project as a duo writing and scoring music. By the end of last year Colaço and Schaeper gather the classical musicians from the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and creates some marvelous atmospheric soundscapes and  piano pieces. The album will be released in Spring 2019.

Heartfelt about finding an authentic tone for each film, I’m always on the hunt for the distinctive. With over fifteen years of experience in the film industry in Berlin and Brooklyn, including scoring for an Oscar-nominated film, I’m as enamored as ever with composing captivating soundscapes and catchy tunes.

My musical education is diverse and ranges from studying at the Hamburg State Music University & Juilliard (NYC) – my own bands – being part of Jim Jarmusch’s team – touring with Michael Gira & recording with the Swans – and my own continual experimentation with new ways of weaving found sounds into organic/electronic landscapes.

In 2016, my first full orchestral symphony, set to three short films, was performed live in Berlin.

Driven by a mutual passion for exploring new sound textures with electronics and acoustic instruments, we are constantly in motion to develop a characteristic sound in our compositions.
With over 10 years of experience in the international film industry and Oscar-nominated composing, our music has been sustaining the stories of films such as Prisoners of the Sun, Rampage, Sicario, the Mercy and commercials such as BMW, Mediamarkt and Need for Speed.

I have always had a big imagination. When I played the piano as an eight year old I noticed that each note-interval had it’s own unique character. So instead of playing songs, I gave each person in my life their own unique interval that suited their character. Over the years I have transitioned from playing on my first keyboard to working with live orchestras, but in a way I am still doing the same thing.

– Stan Koch composer, orchestrator and producer

Sometimes the best way to come up with new ideas is to simply go outside and explore. There’s always a rhythmical pattern to discover when you listen to the sounds of the streets, the subway, the beach, the countryside and so on. It’s a method I have structurally been using to create something different with an unpredictable outcome, especially when I combine them with my guitars, vocals or analog synthesizers.

Eike Hosenfeld began his studies at the Konrad Wolf Academy of Film and Television in 1996 and graduated as a sound engineer. Together with fellow student Christian Riegel and composer Moritz Denis, he then founded the Tonbüro as a joint studio. Since then, he has composed the music for documentaries, television and cinema films.

Moritz Denis, born 1977, is a Berlin-based film composer working in a collaborative team with Eike Hosenfeld since 2001. Among their more renowned projects are the documentary Projections of America, the Finnish movie Hulluna Saraan and the documentary Art War – as well as over one hundred German documentaries and feature films (e.g. Tatort – die fette Hoppe & Loewenzahn). For the work on Sonita, it was important to Denis to avoid clichés, leave space for the story and – most important – the girl’s music. He loves recording himself or his composer colleagues for their compositions and mixing the music on the big screen with his friends from Tonbuero. Denis plays the guitar and the trumpet.

Gregor Schwellenbach crosses subversive conceptuality with the courage of catchy melody, plays with the listening habits of different worlds and mixes them into warm-hearted compositions with depth and character.

„I do play the piano, but I don’t really see myself as a pianist. Nor am I a particularly virtuoso pianist. My piano playing comes from the need to make music. I also play the piano more like a composer or an arranger who has a certain melody in mind and wants to realise it. What the pencil sketch is for a painter, the piano is for me. I create a sketch of the music I have in my head on the piano and can have it produced and recorded there.“ (taken from the interview in >Keyboards< of 6 January 2021.
