Greg Johnson on SoundBetter

Greg M Johnson is a Los Angeles based Composer, Producer and Programmer. His approach to media scoring is defined by his love of experimental sounds and crafting bespoke scores. This can be seen in his score to the ground-breaking Sci-fi series “Medinah” and the upcoming post-apocalyptic series “The Pact”.

Other television credits include the South-Korean Fantasy “Arthdal Chronicles” for tvN and Netflix; “Breaking the Chains” and “A Show About Cinema” for Al Jazeera; and the Romanian Sci-fi thriller “Three Knee Deep”.

Video games have provided him a platform for some of his most experimental work. Recently he scored the fast-paced multiplayer Sci-fi RTS “Strike Tactics’, that features a hard-hitting industrial score, as well as the upcoming action FPS for Addicting Games coming later this year.

Greg has always worked with popular hard rock acts both as a producer and a sound designer/ programmer. He did string arrangements and programming for “35xxxv” by One Ok Rock which was #1 on Billboard World Album Charts, #1 on Oricon and Billboard Japan. He’s also sound designed and programmed for We Came as Romans, Sick Puppies, Tonight Alive, Sleepwave and Our Lady Peace. He’s been a longtime collaborator with the platinum-selling industrial rock group Powerman 5000, having produced and co-written the last two albums, “New Wave” and “The Noble Rot”.

He is also a founding member of the alternative rock band, On Being Human, whose 2nd album, “In Search of Adam”, is due out at the end of 2020. On Being Human has been recognized by Hot Topic, Musician’s Friend, Gopro and CBS for their unique blend of rock and orchestral influences.

    Greg is a consummate professional of the highest caliber. He brings his wealth of experience and unparalleled ear for quality honed over years of working with world class musicians to your project - big or small.

    But the most delightful thing is that he treats you with the utmost respect, patience and professionalism that your passion project deserves.

    The mix/master and revisions are lightning quick and production ready in record time - which is incredibly motivating to hear!

  5. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  6. A: The biggest misconception is that creating a film score is a single person job. There are musicians/editors/mixers/etc that all go into creating a score.

  7. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  8. A: I usually for as many details as possible for my clients' project. There are so many elements that go into creating a score for a project that the better equipped with information I am, the better results I can give.

  9. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  10. A: Being the sole/primary composer on TV shows is both a huge honor and a tremendous amount of work.. but the most rewarding when complete!

  12. A: Currently composing the score for multiple TV shows as well as the follow record with Powerman 5000 to "New Wave".

  13. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  14. A: Both when possible. Analog for quality, Digital for speed.

  15. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  16. A: I get to make music all day every day in many different genres. I've also had the pleasure of traveling to places I never would of on my own.

  18. A: Macbook pro - apogee duet - AKG Headphones - NI Komplete S88 - Robocaster

  19. Q: How would you describe your style?

  20. A: Muse meets NIN meets Ralph Vaughan Williams meets Hans Zimmer.

  21. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  22. A: Modern film score/Rock/Electronic

  26. A: I've been primarily focused on scoring for TV (Medinah, The Pact) but also produce/mix for artists from all genres.

  27. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  28. A: Compoostion, song writing (minus lyrics) and sound design.

  29. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  30. A: Whatever the client needs! Overall though I think I can strengthen melodic content, add a uniqueness to the color or timbre of the track and then wrap it up with a mix.

  31. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  32. A: I will make sure that what you need gets done in the time you need it to get done in.

  33. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  34. A: Shoot me a message! I am very open to work on anything.

  35. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  36. A: I go wherever the wind takes me, the music industry is too chaotic to be picky. I have been doing this for 12 years and it's taken me all over the world doing things I never would of expected.

  37. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  38. A: Any artist with a unique voice and vision.

  39. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  40. A: Write good songs!

  41. Q: What's your typical work process?

  42. A: I usually listen to the song then talk to the writers about their intention and goals. Then envision where the song needs to go and work your way back through all the steps that need to be taken to accomplish that.

  43. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  44. A: I enjoy all types of music but Trent Reznor comes to mind as a revolutionary in the field of electronic music.
