I won the "call for scores" by the European Film Scoring Academy of Europe along with Cameron Moody!
The Trailer for the animation film "Giant and the Seed" is now available on youtube. It was a magical experience writing music for this project. We were lucky to record the music with a string quartet, which gave the film a both unique and intimate character. The sound of 4 string players in one room can be extremely versatile. We used the full range of possibilities in the film. Harsh tremolos, soft melodic lines - even an extremely dissonant downtuned part were part of the soundtrack.
