BIOGRAPHY

Adrian Cermak

Born in Slovakia, I grew up in a family of musicians; my father is a composer/songwriter, and my mother is a singer/vocal coach. Music has been around me my whole childhood. As a boy, I never wanted to be a professional musician, however, I always played an instrument. Throughout the years, I fell in love with the film. It fascinated me how big an impact music had on our perception of the narrative, character development, and emotions in films. I signed up for music composition classes, started writing music just for myself and, I don't even know how, I found myself pursuing a career of a film music composer. In 2018 I graduated from London College of Music, worked on a couple of small budget projects, but I felt frustrated as it seemed big projects are out of reach. 

THEN 2020 happened....

2020 has been a turning point in my career ever since I got my place at the National Film and Television School.
In the beginning of the year I was offered to score a 10 part TV Series for TV Markiza, Cervene Pasky.  This was followed by a fantastic collaboration with Maros Milcik whom I worked with on 2 TV commercials and a documentry IKONY. 

While working on many professional projects at present, I am also finishing my Masters degree at the National Film and Television School.
