Renger Koning is a Dutch media and film composer. Since the early 1990’s, he has composed hundreds of themes for audiovisual productions, commercials, television broadcast stations, documentaries, short films.
He has also received numerous nominations and awards in the categories original music composition and sound design.

“I compose whatever is needed to make the picture work, that is my main concern”.

Sounds and samples
His sample library ‘Piano Attack’ was published commercially and used by several Hollywood film composers including Hans Zimmer in the film ‘The Dark Knight’. 
Not only the notes but also the original sounds create a recognisable and immersive soundtrack. Therefore, he spends plenty of time designing his own sample libraries.
