Full Bio

Milo Paulus (b. August 14th, 1999) is a Dutch composer, conductor, orchestrator and score producer specializing in original music for concerts, screen and stage productions. His catalog spans a diverse range of styles and influences for both instrumental and vocal works, as well as countless original soundtracks for films and video-games. His works have been commissioned by various performing groups, festivals and institutions.


After receiving his first bachelor — a BSc specialising in marketing, programming and visual creativity at the age of just 20 — he decided to fully dedicate his energy to music.


In September of 2021 — after completing two courses at Utrecht University dedicated to music theory and composition the previous year — he started his official higher musical education at the Royal Conservatory of Ghent, for Classical Composition under teachers Daan Janssens and Dominique Pauwels, while also studying orchestral conducting with Bart Picquer and choral conducting with Johannes Dewilde.

reviews

Artboard 1

Some people not only have an ear for melody, and sound, but also the talent for creating music that has personality. Choosing from a variety of colors, every time an atmosphere is shaped to match the particulars of the chosen situation.

I kept trying to analyze the piece and there are so many elements to pay attention to. It is a very balanced work that is built up beautifully, with your many orchestral touches. It has a wonderful cinematic quality and it feels like a love story.

The film is amazing, and I even enjoyed the music without the motion picture running alongside it, and that's what I like about great film scores; that you can hear the music independently and it still sounds great!
