my name is Dustin and I am from a small town next to Cologne, Germany. I started venturing into the world of music as late as the age of eleven when I got my first piano lessons. Right from the start I wanted to play some stuff from my favourite movies and after a while a tried to compose my own modest little tunes. Apart from that, me and brother always loved to fool around with a camcorder and to produce our own embarrasing flicks. I found the most enjoyable part of the process was putting music to the picture. After a while I became curious to apply some self-made music and started some experimentation.
However, I never really considered a career in the film industry or something alike since besides music I have another huge interest in science, especially life science. This resulted in the choice to study biology and chemistry (as well as to minor in music pedagogy).
Despite the fact that I'm not aiming to write music for a living, I invest a large part of my scarce leisure time to compose, using sequencer plus some software synthesizers and a notation program. For piano solos I take an analogue approach. I am very curious to know what you think of my stuff here and eager to learn more! It's just for the fun of it and platforms such as youtube and soundclick are great tools of presenting it to a wider public. Glad if you enjoy my pieces, if not: please say so. I really appreciate any comment, either commendation or critique.
My latest big ensemble composition:
I hope you like some of the pieces. Would be great to hear your opinion.
