DEEPWATER FLUTE ELECTRO

  • Composed, Produced, Mixed
  • Recorded @ ZHdK – Remotesession

For this piece, I decided to only go with one recorded Instrument: The Flute. What you hear is a double bass flute, processed in various ways, as well as an 808 drum machine.

KINGSMAN 2 POPPY LAND

  • Composed, Produced, Mixed
  • Recorded @ ZHdK – Remotesession

Another semester, another great studio session. This time, I composed, arranged and mixed a 4 horn section (trumpet, alto sax, tenor sax, trombone). They played together with a jazz-ensemble consisting of drum, bass and piano. The studio took place via zoom, which was ok. I’d still prefer beeing there.

SPRING AT DOLDENSEE

  • Composed, Mixed
  • Recorded @ ZHdK – Remotesession

This is one of my first classical pieces only written for performance.

The Doldensee is a small lake close to my hometown Peiting, where I used to swim almost every week during summer. We even filmed the music video for our band Rigoros on and in this lake.

ASSASSINS CREED

  • Arranged, Produced, Mixed
  • Recorded @ ZHdK

With this piece, I wanted to rethink the usage of piano. Instead of composing a classical piece that can be played concertante, I composed and arranged this trailer in a way an orchestra would be orchestrated. I also wanted to edit the piano in a slightly different way, letting the small uprightpiano, recorded in a ~16m² room sound much more modern and big.

About

I’m Leo Brennauer, a composer and musician from germany, currently studying composition for film, theatre and media in my fourth semester at the Zurich University of Arts.

I compose, play the piano, drums, recorder, percussion and guitar. My musical interests are varried and diverse. I have played in rock bands, a jazz ensemble, church ensembles, and other pop bands. Furthermore I played percussion in a humber of symphonic string- and brass-orchestras.

Before returning to school to study composition, I did an aprenticeship and worked full time in a musical instrument store and also worked part-time in a studio for several years. Afterwards, I did my Bachelor Profesional of Trade and Commerce (CCI). My one year study in percussion rock pop jazz ultimately led me to my current studies.

Besides my musical interests, I love beeing in nature: Running, cycling, mountain climbing, ski touring, scuba diving, playing tennis, backpacking, camping and many other nice things. As another hobby I like to cook, film, program websites or sometimes build things out of wood and metal in the workshop.
