Ferdinand Grätz is a Paris-based composer, sound designer, producer & DJ. He has, amongst others, created the soundtracks for the Prada Linea Rossa Fall/Winter 2022 and Spring/Summer 2023 campaigns and realised the sound design and composition for an immersive exhibition designed by Mona Kim at Spyscape museum in New York City (Batman x Spyscape). Furthermore, he has provided compositions and sound design for installations by renowned photographer Norbert Schoerner and set designer Anna Burns.
His academic parcours include studies at the University of Music and Dance in Cologne under Michael Beil and Jono Podmore, as well as at the Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya under Christophe Havel. Taking things beyond mere music production, this background has allowed him to also explore instrumental and hybrid setups.
In his music he strives for a sphere of hypnotic, dynamic and minimalistic textures. A key element is evolution and variety in repetition, with a focus on unique timbres, structural form and development of broad-based sound materials. He is also active as a techno producer and DJ under the pseudonym Ferdinger and also runs his own label, Life In Patterns.
Ferdinand Grätz is available for soundtracks, sound design and original scores for fashion films/events, runway shows and special projects.
