    Boris Noir

    Boris Noir was born in the world’s northern most metropolis, St. Petersburg; once the Grand City of the Russian Czars. His parents were musicians at the Mariinsky Theater and the Philharmonic, so it was only natural that, at the tender age of four, the orchestra pit became his playground and his nannies were instrumental soloists. When Boris was twelve the family relocated to Germany. Young Boris retained his love of St. Petersburg and utilized his families’ ties to the Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatory to study with several of its renowned professors.
    Dividing his time between Germany and Russia, Boris began to compose music with the strong desire to become a performer in his own right. He achieved this ambitious goal at the age of twenty, using the stage name of El Rico. Performances and playlists, in radio and television, soon followed; culminating in three successful concert tours.
    It was during this impulsive time that Boris cultivated his love of film. After several misfired attempts, Boris began an inspired collaboration with the distinguished, award winning film maker Michi Lange and famed composer Jules Kalmbacher which resulted in the short film „ebenda“; for which Boris wrote the script, directed and starred in. Works in the film genre lead him to the studio of Naidoo & Herberger, where he a music project involving more than 100 participants. The film team around Boris Noir is also steadily expanding and more colossal film projects are just on the horizon.
