HI MUSIC LOVERS! SO HAPPY TO SEE YOU HERE!
I AM MONS NIKLAS SCHAK - MAKING MUSIC IS MY PASSION
On this site, you will find music and sound art, visuals and film clips from selected movies that I have scored. In my opinion, great music is always an inspiration. Music is conversation. It is interaction between a listener and a composer.
I am motivated by creative people who possess a curious mind and an open heart. I believe that there are parallels between creations in any art form - and if we care to make room for in-depth listening into every aspect of life, we shall see wisdom becoming audible to the emotional ear. I am driven by how everything is connected.
My approach to music may be different from yours. Let’s make conversation!
Danish composer Mons Niklas Schak, Copenhagen/Denmark
Since 2003, I have made more than 60 scores for films, theatre performances, documentaries and tv series + five modern ballets together with composer Tin Soheili and choreographer Pernille Garde.
My work includes original scores for the critically acclaimed "Lost Memories" (2014) and "The Symphony of Silence" (2010) – both directed by Pernille Garde.
“Sepideh“ by Berit Madsen (2013)

”The Ambassador” by Mads Brügger (2011)
“Children of Darfur” by Camilla Nielsson (2006)
For the past 28 years, music has been my main expression form. I combine sound, music, film, animation and sound installation.
I have made several releases using the alias "man eat fish".
"man eat fish" combines sound&music, video art and acousmatic music, electro acoustics, orchestral music and psychoacoustics.
The films focus on duality and contrast.
I was educated at the Danish National Academy of Music with a master in film composition. My classical training includes piano, guitar, composition and counterpoint as well as electronic music studies.
I am a mentor and lecturer in composition and music production at Artlab and the Rhythmic Music Conservatory in Denmark and have been for the past 12 years.
2006-2012: Member of the board of directors of bfm (Danish film and Media Composers)
