Additional Resume Info (submitted by page owner via IMDb Resume)

  • * Gary Marlowe is a filmmaker creating music.

    An award-winning composer and producer, pianist, singer, guitar player and drummer, Marlowe started playing piano at four, turned into a synthesizer prodigy in his early teens and became one of Berlin´s foremost musicians, opening for the likes of Iggy Pop and The Ramones with his band.

    Gary Marlowe became a No.1 hit songwriter and producer for several top acts, leading to Platinum and Gold Record awards, and collaborations which ranged from electronica to speed metal.

    Newspapers calling him "a legend" in his early twenties, Marlowe went on to become a true multi-instrumentalist, developing his own, eclectic style as a composer, which owes to his studies of Ethnomusicology and his open-minded interest in diverse musical cultures and unusual sounds.

    Following some first scores and a nomination for the German Film Award, he decided to focus on his love for the movies, and follow his vocation to be a filmmaker.

    Marlowe moved to Italy, and studied Composition for Film with Oscar winners Luis Bacalov ("The Postman") and Nicola Piovani ("Life is beautiful"), winning the Emma Contestabile Award in his final year at the Accademia Chigiana, where also the likes of Claudio Abbado or Daniel Barenboim have studied. Ever since, film scores are the center of Marlowe´s work, leading to multiple awards and festival wins.

    Today, Gary Marlowe is best known for his minimalist combinations of acoustic instruments, ambient electronic soundscapes and elegantly reduced orchestra parts. He was chosen by the World Soundtrack Academy to perform one of his works with The Brussels Philharmonic Orchestra, alongside Angelo Badalamenti, Mychael Danna, James Newton Howard, Clint Mansell, Dario Marianelli, Gustavo Santaolalla and Howard Shore.

    His activity in Art led Marlowe to numerous collaborations and the development of his own installations, aural frames. Art collaborations include Minimalism master Richard Nonas at The Venice Biennale, Lucia Bosé at the Picasso show in Padova, and a personal exhibition at Scatola Bianca in Venice.

    Gary Marlowe is a Berlinale Talent Alumnus, a voting member of the World Soundtrack Academy and the European Film Academy.
