Renowned Berlin composer, sound designer and musician Simon Stockhausen develops music for Films, TV and Documentaries, and also composes music for theatre and contemporary music ensembles. As a musician (keyboards, piano, electronics and soprano sax), Simon has performed with Lalo Shifrin, Vince Mendoza, Peter Erskine, the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, and Australian trumpeter James Morrison. In collaboration with his brother, trumpeter Markus Stockhausen, they have released numerous CDs for ECM, EMI and Largo.
Simon's portfolio on our site comprises a wide variety of sounds and music reaching from natural ambiences to drum and music loops, dramatic and neo-classical music, jazz, ambient music and more bizarre electronic drones and textures.
