EDITED PRESS RELEASE// NEWS PROVIDED BY Quite Great //  March 25, 2021 5:53am ET //

'Freeze’, the latest release by German composer, musician and producer Judith Haustein, is a multidimensional, beautifully refreshing genre hybrid. Judith’s soulful, smooth vocals float on top of heavy drums (Adam Osmianski) and deep basslines (Ferg Ireland) that are reminiscent of the nineties Trip-Hop era. The track surprises with some well-hidden Jazz harmonies and the soothing sounds of a cello (Christian Pfeiffer), merging into an unexpected rap from Judith’s brother MC BNZ. The mesmerizing music video is complimented by projections of London artist Anne von Freyburg’s paintings, underpinning the emotions of the song.

Filou at Filmschau BW

30th October 17

'Filou' is the latest documentary of Julia (director) and Moritz (producer) Schreiner. It has been an honour to write the music to this film.

'Filou' is about a French mountain farmer who lives in the Ardèche (South of France). He has taken over his parents' farm where he lives wih his dog, his cat and his other animals, far- off from the next village. Any sentiment of melancholy we might feel when we start to realize the tragedy of the situation is quickly forgotten when Francis Champs optimistically starts to tell his story and captivates us with his trumpeting humor.


Premiere: December 3rd at Metropol Kino Stuttgart

Director: Julia Schreiner
Producer: Royal Film Company, Moritz Schreiner
Camera: Moritz Schreiner
Editor: Felix Löchel
Music: Judith Haustein
Starring: Francis Champ

It's my tune - International Music Fair Frankfurt

Marcel Wehn's Corporate Film for the International Music Fair 2017 in Frankfurt is now online!

UPA La Palma

August 2016

This year we have fallen head over heels in love with a little alleycat whilst being on holiday on La Palma (most north-western and most beautiful canary island). As the kitten seemed to have some neurological disorder we took her to the vet. From that moment on the she was fantastically taken care of and found a foster home immediately by the organisation UPA . Such efforts and dedication must be rewarded and and these people must, I find, be supported by all means. Please help and donate or help by becoming an accompanying person for travelling animals.
