Why real music?
A real performance of individually composed music retains the small nuances that evoke big emotions in the listener.
But why is that?

Let’s briefly travel back in history. In 1995, archaeologists discovered the “Neanderthal Flute” in the Divje Babe Cave in Slovenia. Today, scientists believe that the prehistoric instrument was created around 50,000 years ago, making it the oldest one we know.

So, if we remember that our ancestors were already experimenting with instruments in the Paleolithic Age, it becomes clear why music has such a great impact on our daily lives and often represents enrichment. Listening or even playing music is practically in our genes.

The magic of feeling music

Throughout evolution and the development of additional instruments, our ears have adapted so that almost everyone has a certain degree of musical hearing today. Even without a basic knowledge of music, we can tell whether something sounds good or bad, happy or sad, depressing or motivating.

Therefore, the following applies:

The better someone plays their instrument, the more it affects us.

It becomes clearer when we walk through a pedestrian zone and hear the violin or guitar from afar despite all the ambient noise. Maybe we'll walk there now and even stop to pay attention to the street concert. Assuming, of course, that the person isn't a bloody amateur and the music doesn't sound like a cacophony of horror.

A benefit for your project!

Your benefit, if you are wondering how realistic music enriches your production, can be explained like this:

Through music recorded by real musicians, we retain the essence of the performance. We can bring the audience closer to the visual story, and we create greater impact so that your story can release its full potential.

Conversely, if you use purely digitally generated music, you might have a good soundtrack, but that certain something, the cherry on the cake, is missing. In the worst-case scenario, a goosebumps moment turns into a normal scene.

Do you still remember the classic “Schindler’s List”? The main theme here is played by a violin so tragic that some audience members are brought to tears just by listening to it. Combined with the magnificent imagery of Steven Spielberg and Janusz Kamiński, the music builds a deep connection with the audience, which many will remember long after the film is over.

Itzhak Pearlman: The soul behind the strings

This is not just because of the way John Williams' music was written but also because of who recorded it.


The then 48-year-old Itzhak Perlman, who is now one of the most important violinists of our time, dedicated his talent to this remarkable film. The feelings that Perlman was able to express through his instrument are what give us goosebumps.

The big weakness of
digitally created music

We know there are great sound libraries out there these days. Recorded by the best musicians in the world, in the best studios.

If an orchestra records each note individually and a composer later programs these recordings digitally, we achieve a very high level of sound, but one important thing is lost:

The soul of individual performance

Because we compose the soundtrack individually for your scenes and have it recorded by real, experienced musicians, we capture a unique performance that also gives the film music what touches the audience: emotion and passion.

To accomplish our goal, “Realistic music. For every film!”, we collaborate with selected musicians and combine them with market-leading sound libraries. This way, we keep the essence of the music, but at the same time, we can operate in a budget-friendly manner.
