Hi, I’m Moritz.
I was born and bred in Germany, I studied music composition and production in The Netherlands in the early 2000s before I moved to London to finish my studies with a Master of Music degree in Film Music Composition at the prestigious Royal College of Music.
Ever since I’m pursuing my career as a film composer. I’ve been very lucky to work on some amazing UK, US, German and Belgium feature film and TV film productions. Working on these productions I had the pleasure to explore many different genres and facets of film music often weaving several elements into new textures. Musically, I’m a natural explorer – and I just love working with musicians and filmmakers.
I have won the Transatlantyk Film Scoring Competition and was one of the last three at the scoring competitions of the World Soundtrack Awards and the Berlinale Talent Campus.
I currently live in Guildford (UK) with my wife and three children. Next to writing film scores I also work as a photographer. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
