Since the 1960s, Murch has been working in film as editor, sound mixer, writer and director– a genius ‘who has created new standards in editing and sound design’ (SRF). His career began in 1969 as a sound editor and mixer on Francis Ford Coppola's ‘The Rain People.’ Subsequently, he and George Lucas co-wrote the screenplay for Lucas's his first feature-length film, "THX 1138,” and Murch was the sound designer of Lucas’s next film, "American Graffiti."

Altogether he has worked on over 30 titles including cinematic milestones such as ‘The Godfather (I – III)’, ‘The Conversation’, ‘Apocalypse Now’, ‘The English Patient, ‘The Talented Mr. Ripley’, ‘Cold Mountain, and many other films, both as film editor and sound designer/mixer. He collaborated with directors such as Fred Zinnemann, Philip Kaufman, Anthony Minghella, Kathryn Bigelow, Sam Mendes and Brad Bird. Murch is also the director and co-writer of ‘Return to Oz’ produced entirely in the UK, and nominated for an Academy Award for Best Visual Effects.

Murch has been nominated for nine Academy Awards (six for film editing and three for sound) and has won three Oscars: for best sound on ‘Apocalypse Now’ and for Best Film Editing and Best Sound for his work on ‘The English Patient’. His double win in these categories in 1997 was unprecedented in the history of the Oscars. In 1974 Murch received two BAFTA’s for Best Sound and Best Picture Editing for ‘The Conversation.’

Murch is a true pioneer in his field - he significantly shaped the term ‘sound designer’: Together with some of his fellow colleagues he devised the now-standard 5.1 sound format. And that’s not all, for the premiere of "Apocalypse Now" in Cannes, he even installed his own sound system there overnight, because there were no movie theaters with 5.1 surround sound until then.

As the winner of the SoundTrack_Cologne Lifetime Achievement Award, Walter Murch joins the ranks of many renowned prize winners such as Craig Armstrong, Bruce Broughton, Cliff Martinez, Michael Nyman, Irmin Schmidt, Peter Thomas, Klaus Doldinger, Don Davis and Rachel Portman.
