Jan Marxsen

“I try to write soundtracks for sad films that were never made.”

“My name is Jan Marxsen and all my life I’ve been playing in punk and hardcore bands. Following an artistic crisis, I started to melodized literature, nature, and the refurbishment of my flat. For me, it’s all about engaging with sounds and music. When a friend once asked my idea of music, I replied: ‘I wish that in a parallel universe, Nils Frahm had composed the soundtrack to Blade Runner.’ Yes, I think that hits closest to home.”
