Early lifeEdit

The musical life of Joachim (born 9 December 1967) and René (born 16 June 1966) began as teenagers, when they used to play in bands; René played guitar in punk bands and Jumpel drums in pop and jazz bands. Then, after school they formed a band. Over the course of eight years they released three albums and seven singles with EMI Germany. Duerbeck and René played over 400 gigs in Germany, the Netherlands and the UK. Then, after splitting up the band, they founded their own company and studio and started writing and producing music for films. Since then they have been writing scores for numerous films and documentaries.


Inside their Cologne-based studios, Joachim and René have been producing music for many motion pictures and TV shows since 2000. At the Filmfest Valencia, they were awarded the film music award for "Magic Eye" and in 2008 they received the film music award at the prestigious Max Ophuls Festival for "Selbstgesprache". The Movie "Chandani: The Daughter Of The Elephant Whisperer" and "Belltracchi- The Art of Forgery", for which Düberck & Dohmen scored the music, won the German Film Award LOLA in the category "Best Children's movie". As musicians and producers, they are also active in various bands and projects. Düberck & Dohmen are members of the German Film Academy and the European Film Academy.
