I’m a Swedish composer who moved to Sydney 2 years ago, and I am a passionate about my craft and teaching it. I completed a
Bachelor in Western Art music (with three courses in pedagogy) and a
Masters in Western Art Music (with Thesis) at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm.
I have for the last 10 years worked in both the classical concert music world and the Scandinavian video game world. I have composed music for classical musicians, orchestras, jazz and folk musicians together with electronics, light choreographies and video. In the video game world, I have worked with several genres of music for a wide variety of games, hip-hop music, electronica, cinematic soundtracks which have been inspired by Hollywood movies.
