I compose, arrange and record your strings for every genre in a professional setting. Performed for the Swedish royal family multiple times and studied at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm. Organic arrangements and fresh ideas! Unlimited revisions!

My grandmother took me to violin lessons at the age of 5, it's been a long journey since.
I studied at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, toured China playing the key harp and studied tabla in Kolkata. Then returned to my deep love of arranging strings. I benefit a lot from all the ear training I did growing up, and instantly hear a lot of colorful ideas to suit your project.

Typically 4 main voices with 3 sonically different overdubs on each, violin and viola. Then additional texture and effects if the music asks for it. I can get a full and cinematic sound, but some acoustic tracks may benefit from more stripped arrangements.

Track delivered both fully mixed and dry (including original stem buses if you wish). Making it easy for you to add it to your song. Unlimited revisions. I gladly receive your reference songs and thoughts in case you desire anything specific. Pop, Hip Hop, Singer-Songwriter, Rock, Indie, Classical, Folk, Country - you name it!

Viktor Spasov - KIDDO (all of the EP)

Arvid Lizell - Framed Freedom

    Filip delivered really beautiful strings for a song of mine, with such enthusiasm and genuine feeling, which really made the song reach a new level.

    Filip did a really good job for the violin part of my song! He was willing do more than was required for the part and his violin playing adding a great deal of richness and quality to the audio mix of my song!

    Filip is top notch. He'll take your song to another level and is a great talent. Turnaround time was very quick and communication is great as well. I look forward to working with him again soon!

  5. Review by Miles S.

    Filip was an absolute pleasure to work with. With his musical talent, his skill, along with the contribution of his own ideas, he really made the tracks come to life and completely surpassed my expectations. I could not have asked for better string composer for this project. I highly recommend choosing Filip for your next project and hope to work with him again in the future. He will provide you the best strings you could ask for!

    10 out of question! He delivered a string section that fitted my track perfect. I really couldn't ask for more. He matched the mood of the song so good with his work! This is really a professional guy.
    I will hire him again for sure!

  8. Review by Stephen T.

    Filip was very fast and sent me several high quality versions of the part that I needed for my song. He gave me an audio recording that was better than I had asked for! I definitely recommend!

    If anyone wants perfectly performed and recorded strings, Filip is the man for the job. Highly skilled with awesome musical talent, nice to work with and dangerously quick.
