Thilo’s music inspires and connects so readily with both the listener and the player.
Sirocco Saxophone Quartet
We had the pleasure of working with Thilo on a few occasions. He is a fantastic sound engineer and producer and did a wonderful job on our first CD. And his skills didn’t stop there! He also wrote a piece for the quartet which we performed at the world saxophone congress in 2012. His attention to detail is superb and his writing very idiomatic for the instrument and performer. A multi-talented musician!

Thilo was born and raised in Germany. He received his first musical training on the violin at the age of seven and later started playing clarinet, saxophone, and piano. For his studies in Art of Sound (Music Production) and classical clarinet at the Royal Conservatoire in Den Haag, Thilo moved to the Netherlands. After taking composition lessons with Roderik de Man and obtaining a masters degree, Thilo studied sound design and composition in contexts at the Faculty of Media Technology of the Utrecht School of Arts in Hilversum. He had worked as freelance composer, record producer, and assistant producer for radio4 - the national classical radio station of the Netherlands - before becoming assistant professor in the department of music at the University of Lethbridge.
Thilo composes autonomous music as well as for various media contexts. His works have been performed in England, Scotland, Germany, the Netherlands, Austria, Tanzania, Spain, and Italy. Thilo's music is often described as contemporary and accessible. His latest film score (composed under a pseudonym) has garnered a nomination for the Alberta Film and Television Awards 2014.
As a record producer/sound engineer Thilo has worked with various solo artists and orchestras in Europe and North America.
