All his life Jan has been playing and experimenting with music and sound in both – traditional and non-traditional ways. He soon realised that audio-visual was his true calling. He graduated with his Master´s from the Film and Television Academy of Performing Arts /FAMU/ in Prague. Since then he has gained a lot of experience in the advertising industry.
As a composer he enjoys emphasizing and adding emotions, rhythm and depth to the story. He is always looking for ways to add a third dimension to the picture through the immersive power of music. Jan loves using various kinds of instruments, such as symphonic orchestra, unusual samples as well as electronic synths and looking for their unique combinations. After so many projects, he has a very good sense of what kind of music fits the image, the story and the emotion. Jan is always fascinated by the magical synergy that happens when the music is perfectly written for the image, for the story.
As a sound designer, he can create richness through the innovative, precise and clever use of sound. Music and sound design complement each other perfectly and create coherence when they are created together.
Jan frequently collaborates with various directors, producers and international music production companies such as Massive Music, The Elemets Music and Audioforce. He has worked on adverts for companies including Red Bull, Ikea, Škoda, Erste, Audi, Reiffeisenbank, Bata Shoes, Tesco, Vodafone, Pilsner Urquell, etc. His most recent work is the soundtrack for a science fiction detective feature film called Bod Obnovy / Restore Point.
In 2020 he received the prestigious British D&AD Award with project Post Bellum Breaking the Silence. The same project was shortlisted at 2019 Canes Festival of Creativity. His sound design for RedBull F1 Road Trip was nominated at the 2021 Music + Sound Awards. He is also excited that his music composition appeared at Berlin International Films Scoring Competition BIFSC among 10 finalists…
