My score from the 2018 tv-movie “Der Anfang Von Etwas” (dir.: Thomas Berger, prod.: Network Movie) is available on all streaming platforms now. The movie features Ina Weisse and Juergen Maurer (known for his impersonation of Detective Ruiz in the “Neben der Spur”-mini series).

Following the big response to my “behind the music” video, which had been featured on the official social media channels of one of Germany’s biggest tv stations ZDF, with the support of Bavaria Media we were able to compile a 40min album that leads you into the dark minds of Anee and Harry Hoope. If you like thriller/drama scores with a touch of Jerry Goldsmith and Bernhard Hermann, this is for you. Here’s some more info about the film and the release:

Anne Hoppe (Ina Weisse), who works as a meteorologist at the Hamburg Sea Weather Agency, has been mourning for her husband Harry (Juergen Maurer) for a year. The latter died in the morning of New Year’s Eve in a naval accident. However, his body never has been found.
At a memorial service, Anne thinks having recognized her husband, who actually has been declared dead, among the guests. At first, she doubts at her mind, but when someone breaks into her house at night, she can catch a glimpse of the burglar: Now she is convinced that it was Harry. Officer Inga Petersen (Franziska Hartmann), who is investigating the break-in, assumes that Anne is just a quirky widow unable to cope with the loss of her husband. Anne finally decides to persue her own investigations.

In the film score, composed by the award-winning composer Christoph Zirngibl (“Angst”, “Neben der Spur/The Trace”, “Der Auftrag/The Mission” and many more), elements of classical orchestral film music (recorded with the German Film Orchestra Babelsberg) are skillfully combined with elements of contemporary thriller music, forming a soundtrack that always weighs the listener in uncertainty and leads them down into the deep abysses of an anything but perfect marriage.
