Georg-Christoph Schlee (Soundchris) is an award-winning composer for video games and movies and a german Lawyer. He is a classically trained pianist, violinist and singer with numerous international performances and uses this experience to create compositions blending classical elements with modern sounds. Georg-Christoph Schlee was born and raised in Regensburg (Ratisbone), Germany. He began his classical piano, violin and solo singing training early at the age of 6 and was later accepted into the internationally renowned concert choir “Regensburger Domspatzen“.

During his teenage years and early twenties, he performed in over 50 concerts with in a variety of orchestras and choirs and also as solo pianist and singer. During this time he developed a love for choral music traces of which can be found in several of his works. Georg-Christoph Schlee discovered his interest in composition at the age of 14, when he wrote and performed his first little piano works. Later he continued his professional musical training at a German Audio Engineering School located in Munich in order to improve his studio, recording and editing skills and kick off his career as a professional composer. Since videogames have always been another passion of Georg-Christoph, his musical focus are soundtracks for new games and game related movies. Chris believes that truly creative music can only be conceived by understanding as many genres as possible and experimenting with different combinations of them.
