my name is Andreas Moisa. I am a professional film composer with more than 15 years of experience in the business. I am based in Leipzig, Germany (the hometown of Johann Sebastian Bach) where I live with my wife and daughter.
As a composer I have scored over 200 projects including one of Germany’s biggest prime time shows SOKO Leipzig, feature films like The Crossing or Die unheimliche Leichtigkeit der Revolution, documentaries or commercial films for clients like BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Under Armour, Porsche, MAN or Krombacher - together with my composing partner Philipp Kümpel.
Being a natural sample library and soundset enthusiast I also wrote over a hundred sample library reviews for KEYS magazine Germany since 2008 - and also a variety of technical articles about composing and film music production.
The best experience as a writer have been my interviews with Hans Zimmer (who told me about u-he’s brilliant software synth Zebra 2 - amongst a ton of other things), Ramin Djawadi (who told me that creating your own sounds is a big part of your identity as a composer), Harry Gregson-Williams (who told me that investing in good tools is investing in your future), Bear McCreary (who told me that I first need to find the tempo of a scene before composing), Sean Callery (who told me that I need to learn to let go of my music sometimes) or Eric Persing from Spectrasonics (who told me to react to what I hear while creating new sounds).
Whatabaudio (or what about you?) is a sounddesign project that I started during the COVID-19 lockdown earlier in 2020. Many of my film scoring projects have been postponed so I grabbed the opportunity to expand on the sound design part of the profession. As much as I love the many offerings of samples and patches out there I always felt that I want my sounds to be a bit different. I needed sounds that can express emotion, are audible but stay out of the way when people talk. More than ten years of experience scoring the crime drama show SOKO Leipzig, a lot of trying and tweaking led me to create my first commercial soundset „Crime Fundamentals“ which I now use in almost all of my productions.
I hope you enjoy my presets as much as I did making these sounds and write great music with it!
