Edo Van Breemen
Edo grew up in Miami and Vancouver, where he was mentored in classical and improvisational piano. While completing an environmental science degree in university he started two bands, ran a record label, and operated a small underground venue in Vancouver. This led to deeper forays into electronic composition and live improvisational performance. After a composing residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts in 2008, Edo toured extensively with his band, Brasstronaut, and was introduced to film scoring through connections with a group of emerging directors.
Moving to New York in 2011, he worked with a pool of recording musicians, including Rafiq Bhatia, Nadia Sirota, Chris Wang, Alexander Overington, and other notable artists on a variety of film scores. Focusing on studio production quality led to an interest in three dimensional sound installation work and spatial-sound research.
Edo is currently an artist-in-residence at the 4D Spatial Sound Institute in Budapest, Hungary, and is developing a conceptual, immersive sound-therapy programme for meditation and trauma recovery.
Johannes Winkler is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, orchestrator, arranger, and producer based in Vienna, Austria. He has a masters degree in both composition for moving pictures, and also in sound engineering, from The University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna.
In the course of his career, Johannes has worked with acclaimed composer, Ed Neumeister (Inception, Ice Age), and has also composed works for ORF, ZDF, The National Geographic Channel, BBC, and others.
Johannes also specializes in 3D recording and mixing techniques for live hall orchestral capture, and in 2014, he founded a studio in Vienna with his wife Polina Winkler, a virtuoso violin player and improviser.
Polina is a virtuosic violinist from Saint Petersburg, Russia, now living and performing in Vienna. She grew up in a family of musicians: her father is a professional drummer; and her mother is a jazz singer and vocal teacher.
After years of establishing herself on the classical stages of the russian state, and later in austria, she has expanded her exceptional talents to the world of improvisational playing and recording, making her the most important pillar of the Transatlantic Film Orchestra.
Polina plays in several acclaimed Viennese chamber orchestras, including that of the prodigious cello/conductor phenom, Nicolas Altstaedt. Her outstanding demeanor and creative consistency keep the boys in check.
