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 400 projects including one of Germany’s biggest prime time series SOKO Leipzig, feature films like The Crossing or Die unheimliche Leichtigkeit der Revolution, documentaries like Terra X 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 series 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!
