I run my business as a composer and arranger with a background including several years of musical studies in composition and piano, and also as keyboardist in metal bands both for recordings and live performances. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you are interested in my music!

My credentials:

  • 2018-2020 Master's degree in musical composition at Malmö Academy of Music

  • 2017 Bergslagens Kammarsymfoniker "Composer of the Year 2017"

  • 2015-2018 Bachelor's degree in musical composition at Örebro University

  • 2014-2015 Studies in musical composition at St Sigfrids folkhögskola

  • 2012-2014 Studies in musical composition at Sundsgårdens folkhögskola

  • 2011 Studies in composing music for film at Skurups folkhögskola 

  • 2010-2012 Studies in musicology at Lund University and Uppsala University

For my master’s thesis, "Creating Energy in Music: Investigating how the sense of drive can be created in the musical composition", music by Amaranthe, Lord Of The Lost, Battle Beast and Within Temptation was analyzed as a method for understanding how the sense of energy and drive is created in this music. It further looks into how this then can be used as a compositional tool in general and in art music in particular. This thesis is published by Lund University Publications, and of course I hope that the study will be of benefit for future developments within the realm of music!

For my bachelor’s degree I did a study on how I was using my inner hearing/auralization (that is the ability to hear or imagine music that is not actually sounding in that place at that time) in the creative process. Part of that study is my piece Alae, which is available for listening. If you wish to read my study you can find it at the DiVA-portal. Please note that the bachelor's thesis is in Swedish.
