& Reviews

Birger jumped in last minute and composed a genius score for @sunshineeyes.series. He is worth listening to. I am forever grateful for every sound he made.

Maria von Heland

``Sunshine Eyes``, 2023 Netflix Series

And then there is the really beautiful, relaxed and downright tender music by Birger Clausen, that doesn’t force the various moods of the narrative, but rather picks them up. This also makes a rather ordinary scene, in which Anton strolls through a kindergarden with Otto, really moving.

Tilmann P. Gangloff

``Opa wird Papa``, 2018 TV Film

Birger did a wonderful job composing on Fatal Attractions. His compositions were as perfect as I'd heard them in my imagination - emotional, suspenseful, delicate and powerful. A delight to work with, and you can tell from his arrangements that he is fully rounded musician.

Nigel Levy

Director of ‘Fatal Attractions’, 2010-2013 TV Series, 23 episodes

…a music that always finds the right tone, in lighter as well as more contemplative moments.

``Oma ist Verknallt``, 2018 TV Film)

This subtlety also shows itself in the music that grows more forceful in just the right moments, but stays in the background otherwise.

``Zerrissen – Zwischen zwei Müttern``, 2020 TV Film

I’m extremely impressed by Birger’s music.

Dario Marianelli

Film composer & mentor (Academy Award for ‘Atonement’)
