I'm a film composer

The film composer Max I. Milian studied jazz-drums and classical piano in Munich at the Richard-Strauss-Conservatory / Musikhochschule München from 2004-2008. After a scholarship to the Hollywood-Workshop at the University of California Los Angeles in August 2011 he finished his master studies in filmmusic in April 2012 at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg. One of Max I. Milian's first movies, the animation „Chop Suey“, was honored with the Short-Tiger-Award by German Films and celebrated its international premiere at the Film Festival in Cannes.

After his studies Max I. Milian moved back to Munich composing for theatre, film, TV and commercial productions for companies. As Tonmeister he directed numerous filmmusic-, vocal-, speech- and synchronisation recordings in his own sound studio until 2015, and for five years until 2020 in the recording studio of the european patent office.

As film composer Max I. Milian works closely together with the director, focusing on story telling with guiding themes in sounds and music.

Max I. Milian is musical director and drummer of the Incredible Jazz Combination, that is mainly playing at company events and receptions of the state ministry. In 2017 the jazz formation celebrates its 10th anniversary. You'll find further information on www.incrediblejazz.com.
