Jens Heuler



Jens Heuler is an award-winning composer and electronic music artist from Germany. He composes music for films and media, instrumental music, electronic music and songs. His work ranges from orchestral film music such as for Jan Gadermann's Student Academy Award winning stop motion animation film "Laika & Nemo" to intimate scores for documentaries such as Melanie Lischker's "Bilder (m)einer Mutter" // "Life On Tape", a collaboration with Freya Arde, to organic electronic music and pop songs. His most recent work also includes the music for Sonja Rohleder's award-winning animated short films "Nest" and "Somni", both of which premiered at the Berlinale International Film Festival and some additional music for the German television series "Behringer und die Toten" and "Nächste Ausfahrt Glück".

In his work, Jens Heuler combines acoustic and electronic elements to creates organic music and soundscapes, fusing classical, generative and experimental composition approaches while mainly focusing on analogue and modular synthesis.

In addition to his artistic work, he works as a lecturer for Music Production and Project Support at the Film University Babelsberg Konrad Wolf and as an assistant composer and arranger and so he is involved in the music for the Oscar-nominated documentary "Of Fathers and Sons", the German television series "Die Dasslers", the documentaries "Rabbi Wolff" and "The Corridords of Power" and many more.

Jens Heuler studied Keyboards & Music Production at the University of Münster and Film Music at the Film University Babelsberg Konrad Wolf.
