Specializing in piano and orchestra compositions, Michael’s passion pours from every enchanting note. When not working on his own albums, Michael writes film music for dos brains, Immediate Music and Really Slow Motion Music & Sound Design.
Michael is currently working on an amazing upcoming industry release, “Piano and Strings Edition”, in collaboration with composers, Martin Hasseldam, David Christiansen, Sandro Schmidt and Stefano Fasce.
In the spirit of art influencing art, we joined forces in an epic collaboration where writers were given the opportunity to set their words to Michael Maas‘ inspiring music!
During this epic music-driven flash-fiction challenge, writers created a story based on their favorite tracks from “Piano and Strings Edition” and “Illumination”. They could select up to two songs, with each song yielding a tale of no more than 150 words. The stories and inspiring track titles were posted in the comments section below.
Michael Maas, along with the gifted composers contributing to the “Piano and Strings Edition” industry release, read through all the entries and chose their top three favorites. The winners will be awarded mp3 files of the five selected tracks from the exclusive film industry release “Piano and Strings Edition” as well as Michael’s new album, Illumination.
