Gerrit Wunder

Profile:
Gerrit Wunder studied classical composition, jazz composition and film music at the University of Music in Vienna. As a freelance and prize-winning film- and TV composer, he writes and produces for major European and American film productions, TV stations and commercials. He is one of the few composers in the world who consecutively won both the prestigious ASCAP Competition and BMI Award for Aspiring Film Composers in Los Angeles. As a result, he was asked to work with Mike Post on the US hit series Law and Order. Post, considered the most successful composer in television history, refers to Wunder as having "that special gift of writing music in a way that places him a cut above the rest in the field." Wunder also scored the TV documentary, ‘The Sound of Hollywood‘ about legendary Austrian-born Hollywood composer Max Steiner, (Gone With the Wind). He was featured alongside other prominent composers such as Hans Zimmer and Danny Elfman. His versatility becomes evident in the breadth of projects he is involved with. From writing scores for independent movies that have gone on to win awards at international film festivals, his range equally covers music for well-known TV shows. He has worked on Dancing Stars and Starmania, (the Austrian versions of Dancing with the Stars and American Idol), and anthems for galas like the Romy or Save the World Awards. Various major TV Movies broadcast on networks such as SAT1, BBC, ORF, 3Sat, SF1, ARTE, ARD, MDR, WDR, PBS and the Discovery Channel, as well as commercials for companies such as Hewlett Packard or Amnesty International. As well as working on the music for the documentary Na Naia: Legend of the Dolphins, featuring stars such as Kate Winslet, Daryl Hannah and Megan Fox. He did the music for ‘Bloodtraffick‘ (Multi Award Winning Action/Thriller, USA/China, directed by Jennifer Thym). “Gerrit composed a breathtaking score for this film (“Bloodtraffick”), one that perfectly fits the picture and hits all the different points but still is a narrative piece that also stands on its own, as music. This is a rare ability that only great film composers have, and I would wholeheartedly recommend him to other filmmakers.”
(Jennifer Thym, award-winning American film director)
