Inspired by his background in jazz and improvisation, Silvio
Buchmeier composes intuitively and uninhibited by genre-imposed
boundaries. His credits include three feature length films, all
of which have been released theatrically in Switzerland. The
most recent one was "Monte Iato - The Story of an Excavation,"
directed by his long-time collaborator Andreas Elsener. Other
feature collaborations include the mystery thriller "Folie à
deux" by Fabian Schneeberg, and "Durch die Nacht," a nocturnal
drama for which he once again collaborated with Andreas Elsener.
Also an avid composer of classical music, Silvio premiered his
string quartet "Jardin intérieur" on April 18, 2019 in New York,
where it was performed by the renowned JACK string quartet. His
composition "Unsere Geschichten" for choir and string quartet
was part of the Intercultural Weeks About-us! and was presented
in Zurich in September 2019.
