In a conversation with Fabian “The Breed” Lang, Franziska Kollinger finds out what it means to have hip-hop subculture in your name. It’s all about composing and producing – about samples, songs and mashups and about Fabian’s very own idea of sound. We learn what role the musical tastes of film characters play in the composition of film music and how important it is to also be able to exchange pop cultural references in the production process.

Maxi Pongratz is a ‘Foley Artist’ – a ‘noise maker’. What is that? Listeners can find out in this episode of AUDIO:VISIONEN, which – as in the second season of the podcast – is less about film music in the narrower sense and more about sound in film, i.e. sounds, noises and props.

In 2019, Anna Kühlein won the German Film Music Award in the ‘Young Talent’ category; today, this is no longer the case. In conversation with Anna Schürmer, the composer talks about her special diaphragmatic feeling when meeting suitable sounds and why many sound events cannot be written down in notes. She comes out as a fan of collaborations at eye level and emphasizes that women don’t write different music than men – and that we should talk about money…

Franziska Kollinger finds out why the future of film music is minimalist in conversation with Cristobal Tapia de Veer (Black Mirror, Utopia, The White Lotus, Smile, among others). We talk about Cristo’s love of music from the ‘underworld’ and the search for musical perspectives in the process of creating film music. We also find out why Cristo likes to work alone and doesn’t seek out collaborations and why humor is an essential aspect of his work as a musician and composer.
