Martin Tillman is the most successful film musician Switzerland has ever brought forth. Born in Zurich in 1964, the cellist, composer and multi-instrumentalist has worked on an estimated 100 soundtracks, including the music for the blockbusters "Total Recall", "The Da Vinci Code", "The Dark Knight Rises (Batman)" and "Pirates of the Caribbean". He has already been on stage with stars such as Elton John, B.B. King or Sting but does by no means consider himself too good to be a composer for Swiss productions such as "Schellen -Ursli".

Hans Zimmer, for many years the most sought-after composer in Hollywood, describes Martin Tillman's electric cello as his secret weapon. One never knows what kind of sounds the Zuricher will produce with this instrument, Zimmer recently said, nor what kind of emotions these sounds will trigger in the cinema audience.
