About Val de Lobo

My first music studio was located on a beautiful spot with a gorgeous view across a canyon called "wolve creek valley". Giving credit to that place I called my studio "Studio Val De Lobo". Once that name was established I kept it even after relocating the studio.

In my studio I'm producing mostly my own compositions. From time to time I do productions and remixes for other artists as well. I also collaborate with musicians from all over the globe to create interesting fusions of styles. My focus is on World Music, Lounge, Ambient and Film music.

Composing film music

I had a long cherished wish to write film music. It finally came true when I was contacted by the Indian filmmaker and director Akanksha Joshi. She asked me to contribute to her film Earth Witness.

And that was just the beginning. When Akanksha was planning for her latest documentary Hindu Nectar she again invited me to be part of her team! Of course I agreed and the result is a really beautiful documentary movie!

The film features compositions by Chinmaya Dunster (acoustic instruments) and beautiful Indian Vocals by Sukriti Sen and Sandeep Srivastava. The ambient electronica music in this films all stems from the val de lobo studio. And here's the movie:
