For the 10th anniversary of Cinematique Instruments in September 2019 we came up with the idea to establish a new series with free instruments, which is growing every month with a new released instrument. In this series we wanted to create a range of instruments, which reflects our previous work, and our way of thinking about sound and music.
And as we had so much fun creating all these instruments, and discovering new sounds, we came up with the idea to turn Klang into something bigger, more unique and versatile. So we decided to build up a new separate store with much more distinctive and cool instruments, which will inspire you in your creative process of creating music. In addition to that, Klang will be structured in several categories, which will be expanded over the time with new unique instruments.
All these instruments will cover a wide range of approaches, including unpublished instruments, cool stuff, sound experiments, and random products while trying to emerge new sounds.
And Who is behind Klang?
As the name of our webpage klang.cologne shows, we are a Cologne based team of musicians, composers and sound designers. René Dohmen and Jumpel Dürbeck (aka “Dürbeck & Dohmen”) are two of the most successful film composers in Germany, who have written the music for over 100 films over the last 25 years and got awarded with the German Music Prize for Authors in 2017. Nik, Jonas and Ege are the younger part of the team. Nik is a songwriter and composer who focuses more on Hip-Hop and Pop music. Jonas, aka “Dr.Noise” is a sound engineer and designer, who is a real vintage gear enthusiast. Ege has a classical music background, plays the violin and combines modern elements with classical instruments.
