Storytelling is Beautiful
Music is one of its most precious tools.
And music is my story.
Welcome to my site! I am Chris Alexander Schuetze and I think storytelling is one of the most exciting and beautiful arts.
I think a good film composer should know the ins and outs of filmmaking and storytelling. Only that way can he dissect the story and character arcs, interprete the visuals, communicate efficiently to the director and in turn write the best score there possibly can be for a project.
That’s why I am not only a trained composer but also a trained audio visual media designer. I am making films myself and I am able to produce them from start to finish with every part taken care of. I am far from being the best at every aspect, but knowing the demand of each production step and its inherent language enables me to see the whole picture. This empowers me to write music in a different way than most other composers would, serving the story the best way possible. That’s how I add value to a team and a project.
After I finished school I decided to make an apprenticeship as an audio visual media designer at a major corporation here in Germany, where I learned close to anything relevant in media production. After graduating I stayed at the corporation and decided to improve my composition and orchestration skills by taking additional private lessons. Now I work as a composer for film, TV and games.
Besides my passion for telling storys, I like to read about philosophy and self management where I always can learn something about myself or life in general. Otherwise you will find me enjoying some good boardgames with friends and my soon to be wife. Oh and we have two cats. I like cats.
