Löss wins Animaphix

Remember Löss? The animated medium metrage by Yi Zhao i did the sound design and score for finaly got the recognition it deserves at the Animaphix shortfilm festival. It was a very difficult film to produce, to animate, to sound design and to score, but i guess all that work paid off. Congrats to Yi (the director) , Geert (the animator) and Kris (the producer) for their hard work and perseverance.

Gerontophobia- composition and sound design

Almost there!


after a year or more of sketching, composing, orchestration and designing the sounds for this utopian parallel world Boris Sverlov has created, we have finished mixing.

A true vertical arrangement, loads of designed sounds, theremin, analog synths and a big score; strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion and ‘extras’…

I am very excited about this one, can’t wait for it to hit the theatres…

A toxic cloud escapes and everything in its wake slowly dies. On an evacuating airship, overloaded with young people, a pregnant woman hijacks the helm and descends back into the dangerous gas in an attempt to save her abandoned lover.

Löss – compositie en sounddesign

nieuwe, extreem mooie, maar intense medium metrage animatiefilm van Yi Zhao. Ik neem de sound design, compositie en mix voor mijn rekening.

Veel aardse klanken in de sound design en oosterse elementen zoals erhu, guzhen en metaalpercussie in de score.


The Duck Variations in premiere 13/01/2015
