my name is Markus Salmen.
I’m a professional freelance audio engineer specialising in both sound design and composition for motion picture, media and games. Originating from Germany, I founded my own recording studio “puremediastudios” at the age of 17 and my freelance business “senscoremedia” at the age of 24. Through the experimentation of my musical ideas I found my passion for scoring, composing as well as producing. This has included work for artists such as SYON..
This creativity quickly fuelled a desire to pursue a career in production, leading me to want to expand my knowledge and develop my skills. I went on to obtain a first class diploma degree in audio engineering at the SAE in Munich, Bavaria, enhancing my capabilities even further.
Having a sense for accompanying music to motion picture, I soon established my name by composing soundtracks for short films using an individual mixture of electronic sounds and full orchestrations.
For more than two decades I have lived and breathed frequencies, tones and sounds. The early musical education, keyboard lessons, engineering studies and my career so far, have imbedded themselves in my audiovisual consciousness and smoothed my way to being more than a listener; a CREATOR.
