Starting with singing and ending with composing.
A LIFE OF MUSIC
Every journey starts somewhere.
In my case, it all kicked off in a small Sunday-school-style social club for kids called "Kinder- und Jugendclub Glühwürmchen."
Before that, I had some guitar lessons, but the real deal began when I was around 7. I started singing just for fun in a group led by Elena Velikan.
For about 13 years, I traveled around Europe to compete in international singing competitions and even made it to Russian television. I sang solo and with Valeria Schuhmacher, my duet partner back then.
But honestly, I never really liked singing just to beat the competition.
In fact, I kind of hated that part.
Everything changed when I discovered Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs).
With just two crummy speakers and a cheap little MIDI keyboard, I stepped into a whole new music world. For the first time, my musical ideas didn't just stay in my head!
I dived in headfirst, got myself "Frooty Loops Studios" (just like everyone else), and started writing songs by ear because I didn't know almost anything about music theory. Back then, I was really into electronic music, so I began with EDM, Progressive House, Melodic Dubstep, and so on. Over time, I slowly expanded my studio gear.
About a year of exclusively electronic music later, I bought a microphone and started recording acoustic instruments too. That's when everything shifted.
I got obsessed with writing music and went even deeper by investing in more professional instruments, gear, and a new DAW. I just couldn't get enough.
So, I decided to broaden my musical horizons and become a professional musician.
In 2018, I got into the "New Jazz School" in Munich. That's when I fell in love with Jazz music theory and arrangement.
Unfortunately, a few days before starting my education, my singing teacher of 13 wonderful years passed away from cancer. She was the one who got me into the school and supported me every step of the way. She was an incredibly strong and kind woman, like a second mom to me.
With her gone, all her students were handed over to her successors, Valeria Schuhmacher and me. Since Valeria also got into a music school in another city and moved away, 29 out of 33 solo students, duets, trios, and groups ended up under my wing. Those two years teaching will always be some of the best in my life. The joy I got from teaching singing, guitar, drums, and two bands is something I fondly remember.
While studying at the jazz school, I kept on composing and started focusing more on acoustic and orchestral music. In 2021, I moved to Switzerland to chase my dream of composing music and collaborating with the co-founder of "Orisono Productions," whom I met during my education. Now, I'm a music teacher, multimedia producer, and composer. And that's where I'm at in my journey right now.
AM I THE
Video games, Film, Songs...
You name it.
How do you know that I'm THE choice for your work?
I accumulated a lot of knowledge and skill in all kinds of different composing styles, mediums, and genres. Whether writing for film, games, songs, or instrumental pieces, I've always strived to make the best I can do. I'm a very dedicated and fast composer. Most of my sample music was written between a couple of hours and one to two days due to time constrictions. But for clients, all of my attention and resources go towards bringing them the absolute best product tendered to their needs.
If you find yourself interested, check out the aforementioned sample music on the left. You will find a big variety of different musical pieces and songs I wrote for different mediums.
WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS
What started as a desk with two shitty speakers, became a pretty fully packed studio I'm very proud of.
I've invested a lot of time, sweat, and money into it and every minute, every drop, and every cent was worth it.
It's far from perfect, but it's also far from being done.
I evolve as a musician/Producer and so does everything around me. this is my creative space and the reason I'm able to pursue the thing that makes my life fun and meaningful.
