I'm a highly creative music composer, producer and sound designer with a very wide perspective and versatile sound stage. I specialise in orchestral (big epic and intimate), ambient and film music. I also have a lot of experience with EDM, electronic beats and 80s synthwave. I possess an extreme sens for detail and quality.
I offer service within:
- music composition for film, trailers and games
- orchestration mockups in Hollywood quality
- music production (if you have an idea or demo you want to work on, I can produce it for you).
- beats (I can make custom beats in many sub-genres).
- remixing requests
- sound design (music, field recordings, foley, commercial, film and video games)

Interview with Soundthrills
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: In March 2020 I released an orchestral EP with 5 tracks that I did in collaboration with Swedish charity organisation WINGS FOUNDATION. Every track on that mini-album means a lot and have a special place in my heart. I have heard feedback from countless people that it touched them to tears.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: My first official full-length orchestral album, as well as various projects for different clients (trailers, jingles and co-labs).
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Hit me up on DM and I'll let you know.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital has come a long way but it all depends what you mean? I work 90% digital "in the box" because it sounds amazing and is most convenient.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I never promise anything because all projects are different. However I can always guarantee that I will do my best to satisfy your musical need.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: That I created this fantasy world for myself and I invested enough hours into my passion that I can now start earning money doing what I love.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I don't believe in the word "talent". I usually get upset when people say "wow you are so talented, you should be happy you have your music". Because it's not about talent at all. By defining somebody with the word "talented" you take away all the 1000's of hard working hours, late struggling nights without sleep and the obsessive learning and grinding from the individual. "Talent" will only get you so far - but passion, knowledge and hard work will always come out victorious in the end.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What do you want the music to tell? What do you want the viewer to feel? What kind of music do you enjoy listening to? etc.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be well organised, have a clear direction of what you want and DON'T want (you don't need to know anything about music to do this). Also invest a little time in learning a bit of how composers work. If you have a temp track in the edit or reference music - know that this is a reference and don't expect a composer to copy/paste the production. Give as much freedom to the composer as possible because we all sound different and find the right composer for the job.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My iMac, disk of libraries, monitors, audio interface and my keyboard.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: It's a long story and I might tell it one day. I have been playing the piano since I was around 10 and been experimenting / working with music software for over 15 years.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Emotional, deep, ambient, dynamic, uplifting, nostalgic and very powerful.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Hans Zimmer - because I would love to pick his brain on music composition and have deep conversations about music technology.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Get organised in every area of your production-workflow. Create templates for different types of genres and projects.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Orchestral, ambient, acustic piano, synthwave & EDM music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My wide range, quality, emotional and dynamic depth.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: The short answer; Quality. It doesn't matter what kind of music project I work on, I always strive to give an exceptional sense of quality. I go into deep detail of every element in the production to make sure everything comes together in the best possible way. I also give unique emotional and dynamic depth to the project. If emotion is important to you project - I won't be satisfied until the track give myself goosebumps.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: It varies form project to project. If I write to video I usually 1. Get the direction from the director or producer. We go through ideas, notes, create a plan.. 2. Then I import the video into my Cubase-template. 3. I look through the video, create sync points, write notes of interests and try to find a main BPM. 4. After that I usually start selecting the instruments I think I'm going to need for the specific project to create a unique soundscape. 5. I start planning the project, mark deadlines and then I usually start working.

A: Computer: iMac 5k (Intel 8-core i9, 2TB SSD, 128GB RAM & Radeon Pro Vega 48 Audio: UA Apollo Twin MK2 Monitors: Genelec 8030, Yamaha HS80 & Sennheiser HD600 Keys: NI Komplete Kontroll S88 Software Music: Cubase 11 Pro, Ableton Live 10, Reaper & Logic Pro X Music Plugins: Terabytes of Hollywood-standard orchestral sample-libraries from various companies (strings, brass, woodwinds, choirs and percussion), 100s of industry standard synths, mixing, mastering and FX-plugins.
