Biography / The Life of Sebastian Breitenbach

Hi there!

M
y name is Sebastian Breitenbach, I’m a 29 years old musicologist and freelancing composer. I was born in 1984 in Bad Soden-Salmünster. Quite early I got interested in music, so with the age of 10, I learned my first instrument, drums. After a short period of time I discovered the piano and got lessons for that as well. I was primarily interested in harmonic structures and improvisation; an interest which stayed up to this point and led to my university subject choice of musicology. At the age of 16, I picked up the electric guitar as my third instrument, quickly followed by the electric bass and just recently the accordion.

I
always wrote my own pieces, as long as I can think. I also had to produce them, so I’m also nowadays trained with the use of DAWs as well. The genres range from classical to filmscore, from Jazz to Ambient and from 8bit to Metal.

A
fter my first band Cryptic Silence disbanded after a short time, I found my place behind the drums with the band Conjuring. It’s been almost 10 years now, since I’ve joined and I’m really happy there, mainly because of the great guys and a very harmonic band feeling. Aside from that, I got my own side projects. First of all Wylouw, my Death/Thrash Metal project and an yet-to-be-named Psychodelic Jazz/Rock Project with female vocals. More infos about this top secret project will follow soon!
All other pieces, which are mainly filmscore-like, but also a lot of ambient type tracks, are published under the name Sebastian Breitenbach.
