'2 tracks for The Solos - Curio'

Sixteen new novel, unusual, rare and sometimes bizarre trailer music cues. Warm, intimate, nostalgic and reflective. For this album Renger wrote 2 tracks that hopefully will appear in trailers somewhere in the world in the near future.
At the moment it is still an 'industry release'.

'De Val'

De individuele wandelvoorstelling De Val neemt de gelijknamige roman van Albert Camus als uitgangspunt. De rosse buurt van Amsterdam en de bruggen in Parijs zijn verruild voor die van Groningen, maar de desillusie van de hoofdpersoon Clamence is even groot. De voorstelling zet een duister verhaal af tegen een opgepoetst decor. Dat levert spanning op.

"De compositie van Koning, een mooie mengeling van elektronische klanken, viool en straatgeluiden, maakt van de oude binnenplaatsen naast de kerken en de klinkerstraatjes haast een filmdecor. De soundscape intensiveert het beeld, waardoor mijn aandacht opnieuw vooral daar naar uit gaat."
Wendy Lubberding, Theaterkrant

Spitfire Audio and Westworld producer JJ Abrams organised a competition for composers to score a scene from the last season. First I didn't want to enter but since there was a lockdown and some projects were postponed I thought why not. In the end it turned out that there were over 11.000 entries!!!
I did not win but had a lot of fun working on this scene.
