ARTIST OF THE WEEK
Hans Michael Anselmo Hess
Hans Michael Anselmo Hess is an award-winning Brazilian born British film composer based in Leeds-UK.
Besides his busy activity in the industry, Hans also works as a senior lecturer in film music composition at Leeds College of Music and as a senior associate teacher in guitar at the University of Bristol. As a film composer, Hans loves creating a music narrative that blends beautifully not only with the images, but that can also communicate something about the characters, about the story, about a culture, or about a world real or fantasized.
Hans's writing is mainly orchestral music, but he also loves to experiment (whenever appropriate to a project) the use of the classical guitar with other instruments.
In 2019, Hans won Best Score at LAFA, for his work on Clownface.
Opportunities, collaborations, free stuff and more!
