Celebrating the release of “Dirk Schaefer : Peter Tscherkassky, All the Soundtracks (2005–2021)” by, Sonic Cinema is thrilled to present a masterclass with the German composer and sound designer Dirk Schaefer. A Masterclass with Dirk Schaefer is presented by Sonic Cinema at IKLECTIK and is booking now (24 OCT 11:00).

Dirk Schaefer lives and works in Berlin and Cologne as a composer of original soundtrack scores and soundscapes for film. He offers a ‘total concept’ of sound scoring, using music, speech and noise to compose ‘aesthetical units’ that lead and disturb their visual counterpart in equal measure.

The album of his complete collaborations with Peter Tscherkassky is his debut record release. His most regular collaborations are with filmmakers Peter Tscherkassky and Matthias Müller, with whom he has worked since 1985, as well as Claudia Schillinger, Davo Defurne, Michael Bynntrup, Antoni Pinent and others. Schaefer works in parallel as a writer, publishing a book on Friedrich Nietzsche and his sisters, as well as numerous articles on diverse topics: King Kong, Joseph Cornell, opening titles. He is a frequent lecturer in Germany and internationally on film and sound.

A screening of Dirk Schaefer & Peter Tscherkassky’s four collaborations follows this event on 24 October 2021, 7.30pm at Café OTO. Full details and booking HERE.

Programmed by Oliver Dickens.

Oliver would like to thank IKLECTIK, the Goethe-Institut, the Austrian Cultural Forum LondonSixpackfilm and for their generous support for this programme.
