ABOUT

Martin Stys is always on the hunt for sounds with personality. From synthesizers, exotic & classical instruments to kitchen tools he uses everything to create a sonic world that is as unique as the project he works on.

As the son of a classical pianist and a programmer he was always surrounded by music and high quality recordings, as well as computers and technology. He was given music and piano lessons by his mother and studied the drumset under Friedemann Kühn. His fascination for music, psychology and movies culminated in the studies of piano, music production and composition for media at the Robert Schumann Hochschule Düsseldorf.

Due to his high affinity for sound coupled with his profound knowledge about music, he also mixed scores such as the orchestral soundtrack for Little V by danish crossover composer Sune Kolster, which was recorded with the Fame Orchestra.

Beside commissioned works for AMD, HHU and the Duisburg Philharmonic his music is also licensed trough music libraries from Los Angeles and Europe.

He records musicians on a regular basis for his own exclusive samplelibraries and compositions and has a pick of the finest synthesizers and audio equipment available.

In 2014/2015, while studying music, he was awarded with the Germany Scholarship by the Federal Ministry of Education & Research, which is reserved for "international top-class talents".

Enjoying sharing his knowledge, he gives lessons to aspiring musicians as well as young adults.
