Marius Ruhland (*1975 in Bonn, Germany) is a unique voice among a new generation of composers.
After Highschool, Marius studied music composition in his home country Germany with composer Prof. Johannes Schild in Cologne and Prof. Dieter Acker at The Munich School of Music and Theatre. While still a student, he landed the top-grossing German horror movie „Anatomy“ (Columbia Pictures), that paved the way for a career in film scoring. Furthermore, several concert works have been performed by numerous prestigious orchestras such as the Munich Radio Orchestra, Munich Symphony and Hof Philharmonic. Besides from scoring feature films, he has worked for the television industry on a broad scope.
For many years, Marius worked also in the advertising field, mostly for German industry giants Mercedes-Benz, BMW, AUDI and LINDE AG, contributing scores for more than 60 corporate events/commercials so far.
Marius also collaborated with well known artists like Alicia Keys, Francesco Tristano, Cirque du Soleil, Chinese State Opera among others.
The Austrian movie „The Counterfeiters“ (Sony Pictures Classics), directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky, was awarded with an Academy Award (Oscar™) in the „Best Foreign Film“ category in 2008.
