About us

sonority arts, this is us: Malte and Niklas Melcher, under this name we work as composers and arrangers. Specific focus is on film scores, whereas all creation of music, up to the music engraving is an important thing for us. Among others we arranged and engraved for the European Film Philharmonic Institute several times - including music from The Lord of the Rings, Star Trek II or Spider-Man, which then were performed by internationally renowned orchestras such as the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra and the Munich Radio Orchestra. In further collaborations we worked with the NDR Radio Philharmonic, the Munich Symphony Orchestra and the German band Dreiviertelblut.
As composers we are mainly interested in music correlated to other forms of art, this is why we feel comfortable in the field of media. So we are composing especially for film, but also a radio drama or a musical kur can be part of our creative work.
