Birth Sign




Reinhold Heil is a German-born, L.A.-based Golden Globe nominated film and television composer. Prior to Reinhold's career as a film composer, he was well known throughout Germany and Europe for his monster synth chops. At 21, he became a fixture in the Berlin music scene as the keyboardist of a popular jazz funk fusion band, marrying jazz, rock, and electronica into a sound all his own. Soon after, Reinhold toured Europe as the keyboardist, co-producer, and co-writer of the legendary German punk band The Nina Hagen Band and later Spliff, one of Germany's most popular rock bands of the 1980s. Reinhold was also a prolific music producer. "99 Luftballoons," which he produced for Nena in 1983, went platinum, topping the charts worldwide and becoming one of the most successful non-English songs in US history.Reinhold's career as a film composer began in 1999 with the pioneering electronic score to Tom Tykwer's international art house sensation and cult classic, "Run Lola Run." "Run Lola Run" was the first film to have a techno score that was not comprised of pre-existing music, but was scored directly to picture. read more

Experimentation and innovation are integral to Reinhold's creative process, as is a passionately hands-on approach to music production, mixing, and engineering. Reinhold is also a multi-instrumentalist. He owns a vast collection of obscure musical instruments and vintage synths, which often find their way into his scores as organic and electronic custom sounds.Reinhold's film scores include "One Hour Photo," "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer," "The International," and "Cloud Atlas." His unique approach to scoring extends to television. His scores to "Deutschland 83" for Sundance TV, "Helix" for Syfy and "Legends" for TNT challenge the boundaries of contemporary television scoring. Despite the contemporary nature of Reinhold's sounds, his themes and melodies are always employed to maximally support the story's narrative and the protagonists' emotional worlds. His distinctive musical signature is characterized by harmonic complexity, emotional resonance, unconventional chord progressions, and unique hybrid soundscapes.
