Soundtrack for the motion picture 'Ummah – Unter Freunden'

To be among friends usually means to pass a happy time without worries. But Daniel (Frederick Lau) has worries galore. He has to go underground for a few months after his mission as an undercover agent went awry.

When starting a new life in Berlin-Neukölln he accidentally meets Abbas (Kida Khodr Ramadan) – and, with him, the warmth and generosity of an entire culture. Despite clichés and prejudices, the two men befriend each other, and Daniel sinks deeper and deeper into the world of Islam – a process that results in consequences when his former life catches up with him.

Film score for documentary 'Future Works'

Most people have it and those who don’t, want it… work.

For many of us work is meaningful and fulfilling, on the other hand for others it is an un-loved and necessary evil. It claims the main part of a human’s lifetime. But at its heart work is constantly evolving and many of the concepts of working, which seem to be nor-mal and self-evident to us since the age of industrialization, are in fact comparatively young and might even lose their universality in the future. So how will we work in the future? Director Natasa von Kopp follows up on those and associated questions about the future of work for German TV station SWR.

Music for Converse Viral 'Mentalgassi'

When a spark is overleaping, a potential unfolds – be it in a scientific view as electrical energy or in the arts, e.g. when there’s electricity in the air between musicians and audience or when one gets touched by an artwork, because it’s got something special. Getting in touch with arts happens in Berlin’s daily life more often than one thinks, because the street-art collective “Mentalgassi” integrates form and function of e.g. public everyday objects, like bottle banks or ticket validation machines, fundamentally into their arts.
