Anna Bauer


About



Anna is a composer, songwriter and musician.

 

A central element of her work is the emotional relationship between the audience and the story. Her main focus is on supporting the narrative whilst connecting a layer of dense atmospheres and emotive compositions.

 

Her years of experience as a live performer are strongly implemented in the creative process, adding an intuitive touch to her sound, resonating with immediacy.

 

During her childhood and teenage years Anna participated in various band and theatre projects before completing the Eventim Popkurs at the Academy of Music and Theatre in Hamburg majoring pop vocals and songwriting. Following the release of her debut album (“Breaking The Silence“, Warner/Ferryhouse) she has been involved in several theatre productions in Germany and Switzerland before moving to London, where she continues her work as a songwriter and increasingly composes for motion picture.

 

Anna is a graduate of the UK’s National Film & Television School, where she received an M.A. in Composing for Film and Television in 2018.


Anna ist Komponistin, Sängerin und Pianistin.

 

Im Mittelpunkt ihrer Arbeiten steht das emotionale Verhältnis des Publikums zur Geschichte. Elektronische Sounds vermischen sich mit akustischen Klängen zu dichten Atmosphären und filigranen Kompositionen. Ihre jahrelangen Erfahrungen als Live-Performerin fließen maßgeblich in den Schaffensprozess mit ein und geben den Stücken eine intuitive Note, die den Zuschauer in ihrer Unmittelbarkeit direkt anspricht.

 

In ihrer Kindheit und als Teenager wirkt Anna in diversen Band- und Theaterprojekten mit, bevor Sie den Eventim Popkurs der Hochschule für Musik und Theater Hamburg in Popgesang und Songwriting abschließt. Nach Veröffentlichung ihres Debütalbums („Breaking the Silence“, Warner/Ferryhouse) ist sie an diversen Theaterproduktionen im deutschsprachigen Raum beteiligt, bevor es sie nach London zieht, wo sie ihre Arbeit als Songwriterin fortführt und verstärkt Filmmusiken schreibt. Im Januar 2018 schliesst sie ihr Masterstudium in Filmmusikkomposition an der rennomierten National Film and Television School ab.

 

Sie lebt und arbeitet in London und Hamburg.

 

Ihre Arbeiten wurden unter anderem auf dem Sheffield Doc Fest, London Short Film Festival, Cambridge Film Festival und dem Chicago International Film Festival gezeigt.
