About us

Under the name sonority arts we, Malte and Niklas Melcher, work as composers and arrangers. We’re especially interested in collaborating with other creative minds, artists and filmmakers. Over the last years we composed and produced the music for numerous short films and documentaries. As arrangers we worked for the European Filmphilharmonic Institute and more recently for the Munich Filmfoniker and “FMS - Film Music Services” among others. Our arrangements and adaptions were performed throughout Europe by the London Symphony Orchestra, the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra or the Munich Symphony Orchestra to name a few. It’s very important to us, that our music is precisely tailored to the needs of each project. Only a perfectly fitting music will be able to bring out the dramatic depth of a story, the memorability of a podcast jingle or the identification potential of a good advertising or promotional film. As artists we go in for authenticity, which sets our music apart from generic underscore.
