François Kirmann is a professional electronic music producer, recording artist and DBS certified music production teacher.
He can teach Ableton Live and general music production, as well as DJing (with NI Traktor) online and analog and Eurorack synthesis from his studio in Batteresea.
François has been releasing music since 2006, both as a solo artist (as Franz Kirmann) and with composer/multi-instrumentalist Tom Hodge with their electronic/post-classical crossover project Piano Interrupted.
Between 2012 and 2016, Franz released three solo albums and three Piano Interrupted albums (primarily on German label Denovali) in addition to touring around Europe. In 2009, he founded electronic music label Days Of Being Wild.
Since 2017, François has been on the Decca Publishing / Universal roster and has scored various media projects, including the BBC / AMC acclaimed drama McMafia, documentary The Man Behind The Microphone (both with Tom Hodge and in collaboration with the London Contemporary Orchestra).
His latest commission was the 2021 BAFTA winner for best documentary “Locked In: Breaking The Silence” for BBC Four Storyville.
I'm relatively new to teaching. My background is electronic music production and media composition.
I have started running workshops this year in my studio in Battersea on Music technology and creativity and have had amazing feedback about them!
My approach is very hands on and project based.
I believe that the best way of learning is by doing even at a very basic level and to me the teaching is integrated in a creative and artistic practice.
So you will be working with your end goal in mind, whether it is to produce a full professional sounding piece of music, to perform live or to create DJ mixes.
Areas I cover are sequencing, recording, audio editing and processing, arranging, mixing, effects, controllers, analog synthesisers and eurorack.
I also teach DJing with Native Instruments Traktor.
