Main Influences

Main influences are composers such as Max Richter & Lorne Balfe (Ad Astra), Steven Price (Gravity), Benjamin Wallfisch & Hans Zimmer (Dune, Bladerunner 2049), Jon Ekstrand (Life), M83 and the late and great Jóhann Jóhannsson (Arrival).

When it comes to writing music for film, few artists have as much experience and expertise as composers like Max Richter, Lorne Balfe, and Steven Price. These musicians have written scores and soundtracks for countless films over the years, drawing inspiration from a wide range of sources and influences. Perhaps their greatest asset is an intuitive sense of how music can enhance the emotional impact of a scene, helping to immerse the viewer in the action on screen.

One key element that these composers often draw upon are ambient sounds and textures, which create a mood and set the tone for what is happening in the film. Whether it’s the whispering wind in the desert hills of Dune or the pulsing synths of M83 in Arrival, these sounds conjure strong images that help to evoke powerful emotions in viewers. In addition, these composers are known for their brilliant use of themes–both large-scale melodies as well as smaller motifs–which tie together different scenes in a cohesive and meaningful way.

Indeed, whether you’re watching Gravity or Bladerunner 2049 or any other masterpiece scored by one of these masters, it’s clear that they are true masters at their craft. Their music has the ability to transport you to another world, and their approach to film scoring is truly unique.
