BIO: MARKUS TEUFEL ALIAS MARCION
Born and raised in a tranquil Lower Austrian town halfway from Vienna to Salzburg, I received early lessons in classical piano and started writing poetry in my youth (published in my book of poems Ratiolyrik).
After graduating commercial college my interest in literature, mythology, religion and all questions human led me to study Philosophy at the University of Vienna, but the lack of practicality made my stay brief. Instead I co-founded and chief-edited culture magazine momag.
In 2013 I joined Niufilm as creative partner for intl. film productions in New Zealand («Land of Nobody», 2014) and China («A Sweet Life», 2017), in which I also acted in. Moreover I adapted, produced and directed theater productions such as «Gatsby» and «Romeo and Juliet».
Musically I composed for both commercials and cinema, and played the piano in Austrian indie pop band SWAN. My first solo album titled «Chronicles of a Love Gone Wrong» is set to be recorded and released in 2021.
