My experience and passion can easily be divided into these 3 categories.


With years of experience in film scoring, I understand how music can evoke emotion, create tension, and capture the essence of a scene. From epic orchestral arrangements to intimate piano compositions, I have the skills and knowledge to craft a unique and compelling score that perfectly complements your story.

Sound Speakers

With a huge passion for pushing the boundaries of audio design, I bring a unique approach to sound creation. From creating realistic and immersive sound effects to designing complex soundscapes, I use cutting-edge tools, techniques, and my artistic intuition to deliver audio that is truly one-of-a-kind.

Sheet Music

Imagine your music being performed by a full orchestra, with soaring strings, majestic brass, and thundering percussion, adding depth, emotion, and grandeur to your sound. Whether you're working on a film score, a classical composition, a pop ballad, or any other genre, I can help you achieve the professional sound you've always dreamed of.

Working closely with the director of the movie, we thrived towards creating a soundscape where tension and unsettlement were apparent yet grounded throughout the entire film. 



Arrangements, orchestrations & engraving

From creating intricate orchestrations for complex compositions to adding subtle and tasteful arrangements to enhance your melodies. Whether you're seeking arrangements, orchestrations or music engraving, I can tailor my skills to suit your specific needs.

As an orchestrator and arranger, my role is to work closely with the composer or producer to ensure that the music is realized in the most effective and efficient way possible. I bring a deep understanding of instrumental techniques, orchestration strategies and musical theory to the table, allowing you to transform a your musical vision into a full, rich, and nuanced orchestral arrangement. Whether you are working on a film score, a TV show, a game soundtrack, or any other type of project that involves live instruments, my orchestration and arranging skills can help you to take the music to the next level.

John was born 1992 in Gothenburg, Sweden. He attended the Music Oriented School Hvitfeldtska where he was taught the piano and composition.

He wrote his first film music 2018 when he was commissioned to score the short film 'Wedding Dance' by Bianca J. Montobbio which was a turning point in his life and since then he has written numerous scores for film.

Coming from a classical background, John specializes in classical scoring and orchestration with a fresh mix of modern style and sound.

He incorporates many elements from the classical style to capture and subconsciously tell the story of the picture.

His score for 'Backwoods' by Jesse Lane awarded him with Best Original Score for a Motion Picture at the Foreman Empire International Film Festival 2021.
