Born in Regensburg, Bavaria in 1980, Christoph Zirngibl got in touch with music at a very young age,taking drum and piano lessons. Always being a passionate performer, Christoph soon developed another musical interest: His compositional talent was already discovered and rewarded during his high school years. After his graduation in 2000, he joined the German Army Band “Heeresmusikkorps 4” for the duration of two years. His dream of composing film music started to take shape, when Christoph was accepted at the highly acclaimed University of Music and Performing Arts in Munich, to study “Scoring for Film and Television” under famous German composer Prof. Dr. Enjott Schneider in October 2003.   Since then,  Christoph has been writing loads of scores and orchestrations for various short,- tv- and feature films, some of them in collaboration with well known German composers Andreas Weidinger and Helmut Zerlett.

Working on many orchestral scores lately, Christoph’s musical skills embrace a diversity of styles: As a performer, he is used to a wide range of genres,  from  country  and  pop  over  any  kind  of  rock,  jazz,  blues,
