Jens J. Dewald has studied musicology and cultural studies at Humboldt-Universität Berlin. The function of music in various digital and interactive media has thereby been his main focus. His bachelor thesis discusses the function of film music in emotional-perspective sound mixing whereas his master thesis adresses concepts of adaptive music in video games.
To complement his qualities in musicology and media studies with practical skills, he received private lessons in composition from Berlin composer and producer Carlo Inderhees for several years. He acquired musical proficiency in various bands, choirs and ensembles and as director of a six-headed jazz combo.
