Bennet Bieck is a composer for film and media projects, currently located in Cottbus (near Berlin), Germany. A multi-instrumentalist, he began his musical journey as a drummer, and later expanded his horizons to include guitar, bass and piano. Coming from a sensibility that is firmly based in rhythmic structure, his compositions are punctuated by beats and grooves, encompassing sounds that range from full symphonic arrangements to electronica and guitar-oriented rock, pop, punk. He has scored several films, commercials and video games, and the films recently worked on, the short films „Prodromal“ and „The Crystallomancer“, won an Award of Merit and an Apex AWARD.
Citing influence from such iconic composers as Hans Zimmer (Lion King, Rain Man), Lorne Balfe (Terminator Genisys, Assassin’s Creed), Peter McConnell (Grim Fandango, LucasArts) and German experimental electronic composer Niels Frahm (Victoria), his entire life has been dedicated to making and recording music, music for film, and more recently for video games. He is intensely committed to his craft, and to discovering new ways to broaden the range of emotions represented on film, providing that subtle underpinning that has the power to change the entire tone of a scene.
Bennet’s past experience includes working as an audio engineer/producer in a recording studio, where highlights include producing songs for Jimmy Jamison of Survivor as well as working with many rock bands and other artists. When he isn’t in the studio, composing or playing in one of several bands, Bennet loves to watch movies, listen to music (especially scores) and spend time with his family, who inspire him to create every single day.
