“Gifted” seems too puny a word to apply to Marlen’s talent. She is deeply devoted to every project she undertakes and brings a wide experience and intelligence to her every endeavor with a staggering pool of ideas ready to enhance any project at hand. With a strong vision, passion and drive towards all areas of production but above all, with exceptional communication skills and a down-to-earth demeanor, Marlen can work as a part of a cohesive team as well as independently. Her compositions are profound without being stuffy with her unique artistic "voice" shining through her work. A first-rate composer who can alter between styles, cinematic genres while at the same time masters the art of letting the story define the sound. Marlen has a deep understanding of scene rhythm and tone and hence, along with her great music, can enhance the dramatic narrative and the emotional impact of any scene or sequence. It's always a pleasure to work with her. Marlen has an outstanding future ahead of her."
