You’re more familiar with the sounds of Jörg Hüttner than you may think. Contributing the electronic landscape of films like Girl on a Train, Fifty Shades of Grey, Independence Day, as well as the HBO Documentary Cries from Syria, it’s clear Jorg pushed the boundaries of what a modular synthesizer can do against a lush string arrangement.
He was born in Ulm, Germany. Starting with piano lessons at a young age, his interest in electronic music started at the early age of 9, as he became influenced by artists such as Kajagoogoo, Jean-Michel Jarre, and Depeche Mode. He bought his first synthesizer at the age of 15 and has been making cutting-edge music with an electronic flare ever since.
In March of 2007, Jorg was urged by Hans Zimmer to move Santa Monica, California. The goal was to pursue a career in film music. Since making the move, Jorg has worked on over 20 films and remains extremely active in the film music world.
Aside from his work with Hollywood film composers like Hans Zimmer, Atli Örvarsson, Danny Elfman, Martin Tillmann, Harald Kloser, and others, Jorg also continues to work on music productions with producers and professionals like Uwe Baltrusch (“Wise Guys”, “Mekong Delta”, “Ape Einstein”), and Sean Beavan (“Kill Hannah”, “Marilyn Manson”, “Nine Inch Nails”, “8mm”).
