Growing up as the only child of a Swiss film music composer and a creative editor was Remo Roth’s fast-track into a life surrounded by the arts. By 7, he had received his very first piano, but more importantly, discovered his profound connection to music.
For Remo, “making music is something not done with the thinking mind, but rather your guts”. As a result, improvisation lies at the heart of each composition. Instead of focusing on lyrics, he seeks to tell stories via melody and mood, with central themes revolving around loss, memories, and reunion. His style echoes influences from film composers such as John Williams, Alan Silvestri, Philipp Glass and Rachel Portman. Greatly fond of classical film music, it is said that he spends more time listening to films than actually watching them.
While Remo’s genres are fluid and always changing, the ivories remain at the core of all of his songs. Above all, each piece is highly emotive, and often a reflection of Remo’s mood and headspace at the time of it being written.
The last 23 years has seen Remo Roth build a collection of musical fragments, many of which he is ready to share with the world today. His third release «The Colors of Life» premiered on August 21st, 2020, and he has several more scheduled for later this year. Further release details to follow.
