Having made Australia his new home, Minder decided to solely focus on his film scoring in 2014. It didn’t take long for him to compose for his first feature film. Inspired by the music of Vangelis, Ennio Morricone and Klaus Doldinger, Minder has an intuitive approach to scoring, learning quickly about the importance of a memorable theme. In the first years of his scoring journey, Minder wrote for international film projects, documentaries, television and commercials, including a campaign for Porsche starring Patrick Dempsey.
Minder wrote, composed and orchestrated the SONY distributed, HBO screened Australian Western ’The Legend of Ben Hall’ in 2016. He was one of four Australian composers in the running to be nominated for a ‘Best Score’ Oscar that year. The score also won the Oniros Film Award for ‘Best Original Soundtrack’ and also ‘Best Composer 2017’ at the Australian Screen Industry Network Awards.
Minder’s work has featured in many award-winning films around the world, and his scores have featured in The Hollywood Reporter, Variety, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly.
