About me

As a freelance film composer since the mid-90's, I've produced diverse original scores for cinema, television and corporate videos. Starting with short films for the dffb and the HFF Konrad Wolf in Berlin, the first feature film, "Paul is dead" (2000) won numerous prizes, including the Grimme Prize. Seven other Grimme nominations followed over the years for TV features and the famous crime series "Tatort". With "Alaska Johansson" (2014) there was also a nomination for the Rolf-Hans-Müller Prize for Film Music, 2021 got the score "Die Ferien des Monsieur Murot" on the short list of the same award.

From 1994 I was resident DJ in the Berlin Plantation Club, a predecessor of today's beach bars and a wild venue for cross-genre dance music. The first engagement as a wedding DJ was for friends of the bosses. In 1998 the club burns down, the weddings remain.

The hardly listening soundsystem has been playing underwater music on a regular basis in Berlin's Liquidrom since 2008 - well-groomed background music with an extensive repertoire is one of my favorite skills.

I've also played in different bands and numerous music projects, including This Big Herbert, Ornament & Verbrechen and Triplum. Denzel + huhn (est. 1999) has become my electronic home base after all these years.
