In two concerts five suites from the soundtrack were premiered in March 2010 in Innsbruck. He also composed interalia the work "Für die Mädels" for string orchestra, several solo works for piano and  works for string quartet. 2012 he finished his first "Symphony", which was premiered in May 2013 by the Universitätsorchester Innsbruck.

Description of Style

The style of Tyrolean composer Martin Schmid covers various areas of the composition - starting with film music in a high romantic style (with concise themes and tense accompanying phrases) and new music (with skillful use of contemporary effects and the exploitation of new sound dimensions, but always building on everything past) up to the point of rock and pop songs.
