“Authenticity through sound” is the slogan by which Robert Lanting (1991) - a media composer, music producer, and audio engineer from the Netherlands - likes to work. Coming on the media music scene early 2019, his debut was the title track of a short film which was critically acclaimed by the director and audience. Robert focuses on what a specific media project needs in terms of music and sound, and coordinates intimately with the director or music supervisor, to translate their creative vision into an authentic musical landscape.

So far, Robert has created music for short movies, documentaries, podcasts, games, online courses, and more. His music has been licensed all over the world through music libraries, among clients like Media Monks and T-Mobile.

One of Robert's tracks went viral on YouTube in 2021 and gained over 50,000 views within six months. In April 2022, he won the Evenant Composer Challenge with his track Total Eclipse. In May 2022 he was composer for the 48 Hour Project movie A Ticket To Trouble, which won second prize for best movie, and got a nomination for best music. 

From epic thunderous trailer music to intimate piano, from cinematic soundscapes to deep chillstep, Robert delivers the sound your project needs. That’s “Authenticity Through Sound.”



What is Authenticity Through Sound?

Well, lets start with a definition of "authentic". Merriam-Webster defines the word as follows:

Definition of authentic
1 a : worthy of acceptance or belief as conforming to or based on fact 
b : conforming to an original so as to reproduce essential features 

c : made or done the same way as an original

2 : not false or imitation : REAL, ACTUAL 

3: true to one's own personality, spirit, or character

All of the above definitions have some common ground with what I mean when I say "Authenticity Through Sound". I like the thrid definition most: true to one's own personality, spirit, or character. 

I strive to create the sound that is true to the personality, spirit, or character of your project, wether that's a marketing campaign, movie, documentary, podcast, or video game.
