Cubase Powers Michael Fakesch and Philips to Cannes Lions Win

July 3, 2009

Veteran Cubase user Michael Fakesch has scored a major success for his scoring and sound design agency DESIGNINGSOUNDS. His work on Carousel, which was commissioned by electronics brand Philips, helped the film clinch the “Oscar” of the world’s advertising industry, the Cannes Lions Grand Prix. Produced using Cubase 5 and HALion Symphonic Orchestra, Fakesch’s haunting, evocative soundtrack underscored the eerie, chaotic yet hard-hitting sense of stasis employed in the film to showcase the capabilities of Philips’ Cinema 21:9 technology and products.

Fakesch, former member of electro act Funkstörung, has been providing world-famous companies and organizations with his unique yet versatile brand of cutting-edge sound design since the demise of Funkstörung in 2005. His credits include multiple campaigns for Toyota, the world premiere launch for Sony’s PSP Go as well as vital contributions to successful campaigns for KIA, Vodafone and Disney, to name but a few. His own musical output has also continued unabated, such as his critically-acclaimed solo album dos as well as remixes for other artists including Herbert, Bomb The Bass and Booka Shade.
