Philippe Glandien is a German composer, producer and musician specialized in creating a wide array of individually tailored music for film – ranging from modern orchestral Film Score to catchy Pop and Electronica to Jazz, Folk and World Music to more obscure Alternative, Metal and Avant-Garde.
Brought up in a musical family, Philippe Glandien began his musical career at the age 5 playing violin. In the course of his adolescence, he autodidactically learned guitar, bass guitar, and drums and gained experience as a performing musician, leadsinger, and songwriter in various rock bands. At the age of 18, he re-discovered his love for classical music and taught himself to play piano.
To combine his two passions – Rock and Classical music –, in 2006, he founded Sinfuria – The Warchestra, a later to be 10-strong Progressive Metal ensemble, in which he – as its leader, conductor and arranger/score-writer, as well as guitarist and one of three composers – placed classical instruments and dramatic structures in a Metal band context. Sinfuria was active live until 2012, and persists today as a studio project.
In 2009, Glandien, again autodidactically, gained first experiences as a film composer, and shortly after, also established himself in the commercial film industry. In the following years, Glandien realised – mainly as a film composer and producer of his own music, but also sound designer, arranger, orchestrator, and mixing/mastering engineer – a variety of worldwide performed works for cinema and television, bands and solo artists, as well as trade fairs and live concerts.
Glandien works as a freelancer in his Gisela-Studio in Berlin his main interest being directed at film projects in the genres Science Fiction, Thriller, Black Comedy and Documentary.
