Dirk Ettelt

Born in 1984 and grown up in Germany, I've taken piano lessons since the age of 10 years up to 19 years.

I started composing, mostly works for piano, at the age of 14. Since then, I occasionally composed pieces for piano as well as arrangements for songs, small ensembles and orchestra.

In 2000/2001, I took part in the 10th youth composer's competition "Jugend komponiert" in NRW, Germany and won a price with my composition "Invasion triste". In 2003, I also took part in the 11th youth composer's competition "Jugend komponiert" in NRW, Germany, and won the 2nd price with my composition "Rote Phantasie" (=Red Phantasy).

I continued composing during my studies of Physical Engineering and mainly produced compositions and recordings in the style of film music.

Today, I'm working as R&D Engineer, but still composing music and playing the piano is part of my life!
