MUSIC FOR FILM
Composing for film has been my first step into the world of post-production sound. Although it didn't take long for me to fall in love with sounds and atmospheres as a more subtle way of story-telling, I'm ready to produce your score!
MUSIC FOR STAGE
I also love combining my musical and sound design skills live on/off stage, composing for theater, dance and performance. I enjoy experimenting with speakers in space (and leaving standard cinema layouts), as well as real-time interaction with dancers as a highly inspiring process.
In this rather free context I have created enveloping multi-channel experiences for several full-length solo pieces.

Being an active musician, I play tenor and soprano saxophones, analogue synthesizers, pianos, organs, guitars and whatever objects I find in my Foley studio.
I have acquired my skills in several big bands, jazz combos, electronic projects, rock and even cumbia bands, as well as studying under the internationally renowned saxophone player Johannes Enders.
Stylistically, I swing between jazz, dub, filigree electronica, minimal classic, musique concrète and pulsing club sounds. I'm especially fascinated by the electronic qualities of acoustic instruments (vice versa), and I love blending them together. Probably one can also discern some traces of my youth within the vibrant jazz/electronic scene of “TheNotwist”-town Weilheim, Bavaria, I don’t know.
Whether acoustic or electronic: I prefer to use analogue instruments. Warm sounds, subtle variations and hands-on playing lead to more expressive and unique results.
I don't need thousands of presets but instead love to plug cables, turn knobs and fine-tune exactly that specific sound I'm looking for. That's why real instruments add that special touch to your production, too.
As solo musician, I produce and release my own music as Alban Endlos. I compose, play and record everything myself, sometimes featuring my friends on their instruments.
In 2016, I released the 9-track album "Goldene Welt", accompanied by six superb remixes and a Vimeo-staff-picked music video.
From time to time, I also remix other people's work, which is the only occasion that I use foreign "samples". Like with my own tracks, it's always a nice surprise to stumble upon them in international podcast series or radio shows.
Together with two friends, I formed the live-act TREIBGUT, playing 100% improvised house music since 2009.
The combination of analogue synthesizers, soprano saxophone, electro-mechanical piano, effect pedals and drum machines aims for the more danceable side of things and has already played many beautiful festivals and renowed clubs.
