Max Richter : ‘Luminous’ (Animated Music Score)



Composer Max Richter was born in Germany in 1966 and grew up in the UK. He studied Composition and Piano at The University of Edinburgh, The Royal Academy of Music and in Florence with Luciano Berio. Though he has a strong background in the canons of classical music, his influences were more modern composers and in particular, Iannis Xenakis whose musical compositions applied mathematical and physical laws, and the American Minimalists. His influences also include numerous rock bands such as, The Beatles, Pink Floyd and The Clash, as well as electronic music groups Kraftwerk and Autechre…

He co-founded Piano Circus, a contemporary classical ensemble, where he stayed for ten years. With the ensemble, he commissioned and performed the works of experimental artists like Steve Reich, David Lang, Arvo Pärt, Brian Eno and Julia Wolfe. After he left, he became involved in the UK’s thriving electronic scene, collaborating with The Future Sound of London and Roni Size. He has released four solo albums: Memoryhouse (2002), Blue Notebooks (2004), Songs From Before (2006), and latest, 24 Postcards In Full Colour (2008), a collection of miniatures originally meant to be used as ringtones. Recently he’s scored a number of films, including the critically acclaimed Waltz with Bashir by Ari Folman.
