Music Composed for Radio Plays and Audio Dramas

In 2011, I started writing the music for the popular audio drama series Sherlock Holmes – Die neuen Fälle. The show was produced by allscore media and starred renowned actors Christian Rode, Peter Groeger, Helmut Krauss, Lothar Blumhagen, Christian Brückner, Thomas Danneberg, Wolfgang Draeger and Eckart Dux.

The series ran for 56 episodes and was one of the best-selling German audio drama shows. You can listen to a few excerpts of my work in the SoundCloud playlist above.

Furthermore, I wrote, arranged and recorded the music for episodes of the audio drama shows Professor van Dusen, Geisterschocker, and Sigurd – Der ritterliche Held.
